|Evidence:||Substrate In Vitro Evidence: 1. GLUT12 facilitates transport of glucose (D-glucose>D-galactose>D-fructose>L-glucose) in the Xenopus laevis oocyte expression system. Rogers, S et al. Biochem Biophys Res Comm 2003 Aug 29, 308(3):422-6. Tissue Distribution Evidence: 1. Cloned from MCF7 breast cancer cell line. Also expressed in invasive human breast tumors (IHC, RT-PCR). Rogers, S. et al. Cancer Lett 2003 Apr 25, 193(2):225-33 PMID 12706881. 2. Two-step RT-PCR demonstrated expression of mouse GLUT12 in murine adipose tissue (although no expression in NIH3T3 cells). Human GLUT12 was found in human adipose tissue. Wood, IS; Hunter, L; Trayhurn, P. Biochem Biophys Res Comm 2003 Aug 15, 308(1):43-9 PMID 12890477. 3. Immunohistology studies demonstrated a dynamic spatial and temporal expression pattern for GLUT12 in human placenta. Gude, NM et al. Placenta 2003 May, 24(5):566-70 PMID 12744934.|

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript
The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.) Click on a transcript or tissue to resort the data.
Showing gene variants in regions defined by NCBI RefSeq exons, putative promoter, and PMT resequencing assays.
Note: Frequencies are calculated directly from reported genotypes and may vary from consensus frequencies reported by the 1000 Genomes project, which relied on additional data and the GATK tool Variant Quality Score Recalibrator.
Non-synonymous amino acid changes shown in red, indels (insertions and deletions) in blue, and synonymous changes in green. Exon(s) indicated by black outlines.
