ebXML

glucose_2

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 maps onto the framework is ebXML.

So what is ebXML? To answer that we need to look at XML which stands for extensible markup language.

XML is a format for writing documents which can be read by people but can also be processed more easily by software. This is done by using simple code to identify different aspects of a document.

ebXML stands for electronic business using XML.

The website for ebXML references the National Program for IT (NPfIT) in the NHS which used ebXML for messaging.

The Brain Hypometabolism Hypothesis Part 36: GLUT 13

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 their paper, Professors Bernard Thorens and Mike Mueckler note that GLUT 13 is

  1. A myoinositol transporter
  2. A symporter
  3. Expressed mainly in the brain

As of April 2017 there is no solved structure for GLUT 13 according to PhosphoSite Plus.
