SLC2A4 is a member of the solute carrier family 2(facilitated glucose transporter) family and encodes a protein thatfunctions as an insulin-regulated facilitative glucose transporter.In the absence of insulin, this integral membrane protein issequestered within the cells of muscle and adipose tissue. Withinminutes of insulin stimulation, the protein moves to the cellsurface and begins to transport glucose across the cell membrane.
