Recombinant proteins for solute carrier family 2 member 8 are available from various sources. In humans, this protein has a Uniprot ID of Q9NY64 and has an annotated function: 'Insulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter.' This protein is 477 amino acids in length and 50.9 kilodaltons in mass. It has been designated a subcellular localization as: cell membrane. This protein is encoded by the gene SLC2A8. Other names also exist, such as: solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 8, glucose transporter type 8, glucose transporter type X1, solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 8. This protein is conserved in other species, including: mouse, rat.
