Title:
Reassessment of GLUT7 and GLUT9 as Putative Fructose and Glucose Transporters. 
Abstract:
Although increased dietary fructose consumption is associated with metabolic impairments, the mechanisms and regulation of intestinal fructose absorption are poorly understood. GLUT5 is considered to be the main intestinal fructose transporter. Other GLUT family members, such as GLUT7 and GLUT9 are also expressed in the intestine and were shown to transport fructose and glucose. A conserved isoleucine-containing motif (NXI) was proposed to be essential for fructose transport capacity of GLUT7 an...    »
