The Brain Hypometabolism Hypothesis Part 32: GLUT 10

glucose_2

Professors Bernard Thorens and Mike Mueckler have written a review titled ‘Glucose Transporters in the 21st Century’. In terms of a Brain Hypometabolism Hypothesis, it is important to understand how Glucose is handled in the brain. Thorens and Mueckler reference 14 Glucose Transporters.

Mutations in GLUT 10 are linked to Arterial Tortuosity Syndrome. A more recent literature search reveals a number of other papers in relation to ATS as well as a study looking at peripheral vascular disease in Diabetes. At the time of writing, the NIH Gene Database describes the gene as playing a role in glucose homeostasis.
