The Brain Hypometabolism Hypothesis Part 35: Classes of GLUT’s

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 but not all of them are expressed in the brain.

In this paper it is noted that the GLUT family are divided into three classes.

Class I – GLUT1, GLUT2, GLUT3, GLUT4, GLUT14

Class II – GLUT5, GLUT7, GLUT9, GLUT11. Fructose is a subtrate for Class II GLUT’s.

Class III – GLUT6, GLUT8, GLUT10, GLUT12, GLUT13

This paper goes into some of the more subtle nuances of the GLUT’s.

There is an NHS interoperability handbook here. Appendix A features a table which maps current standards to the interoperability framework layers. One of the standards that map onto the interoperability framework are the codes published by the Organisation Data Service (ODS).

The Organisation Data Service has a web page here. This page also features a link to the 5 year strategy for the ODS ‘Organisation for all’ which includes an approach to consolidating coding structures. The ODS publishes unique identifiers for organisations and professionals.
