SLC2A6 encodes the human gene, Solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 6. It may also be known as: Solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 6; GLUT-6; Glucose transporter type 6; GLUT9; HSA011372. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 507 and a mass of 54.5 kDa. SLC2A6 is a member of the Major facilitator superfamily, Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family, Glucose transporter subfamily. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
