"The expedited diffusion of aldohexose, galactose, fructose, urate, myoinositol, and dehydroascorbicacid in mammals is catalyzed by a family of fourteen monosaccharose transport proteins known as GLUTs. These transporters could also be divided into 3 categories in keeping with sequence similarity and function/substrate specificity. GLUT1 seems to be extremely expressed in glycolytically active cells and has been coopted in ascorbic acid auxotrophs to take care of the reaction state of the blood through transport of dehydroascorbate. Many GLUTs area unit definitive glucose/galactose transporters, GLUT2 and GLUT5 area unit physiologically vital levulose transporters, GLUT9 seems to be a salt transporter whereas GLUT13 could be a proton/myoinositol cotransporter. The physical substrates of some GLUTs stay to be established.
