Professors Bernard Thorens and Mike Mueckler have written a review titled ‘Glucose Transporters in the 21st Century‘.
In the article they note that the glucose transporters (members of the GLUT family) are part of the Major Facilitator Superfamily of Membrane Transporters (e.g. see this paper).
This superfamily of membrane transporters is responsible for transporting a large variety of compounds across the cell membrane and along an electrochemical gradient.
