Mutations in the SLC2A10 gene cause arterial abnormalities in mice

Dr. Chen, Yuan-Tsong
Cardiovascular Research., Nov 21, 2008

Aims: Glucose transporter 10 (GLUT10), encoded by the SLC2A10 gene, is a member of the class III facilitative glucose transporter family. Mutations in the SLC2A10 gene cause arterial tortuosity syndrome (ATS) in humans. To further study the pathogenesis of the disease, we generated mice carrying GLUT10 mutations.
