Recombinant proteins for solute carrier family 2 member 3 are available from various sources. In humans, this protein has a Uniprot ID of P11169 and has an annotated function: 'Facilitative glucose transporter that can also mediate the uptake of various other monosaccharides across the cell membrane.' This protein is 496 amino acids in length and 54 kilodaltons in mass. It has been designated a subcellular localization as: cell membrane. This protein is encoded by the gene SLC2A3. Other names also exist, such as: solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 3, GLUT-3, glucose transporter type 3, brain, solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 3. This protein is conserved in other species, including: mouse, rat, zebrafish, chimpanzee, guinea pig.
