Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits D-glucose transmembrane transporter activity and dehydroascorbic acid transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in cellular response to glucose starvation; dehydroascorbic acid transport; and glucose transmembrane transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including the apical plasma membrane; basolateral plasma membrane; and female pronucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in brain disease (multiple); carbohydrate metabolic disorder; myelomeningocele; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SLC2A1 (solute carrier family 2 member 1).
