Background Glucose Transporter GLUT4 (SLC2A4 or GLUT4) is an insulin-sensitive glucose transporter which facilitate insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in adipose tissue, skeletal muscle and cardiac tissues (that specifically express GLUT4). GLUT4 is a 12-transmembrane domain/ multi-pass membrane protein localized in endomembrane system as well as cytoplasm near perinuclear region, and facilitates glucose transport in the direction of glucose gradient. This transporter localizes to intracellular organelles (endosomes) in unstimulated cells and translocates to the cell surface following insulin stimulation via TBC1D4 phosphorylation. Transgenic mice lacking or overexpressing GLUT4 respectively decrease or increase whole-body insulin sensitivity, suggesting its role in maintenance of glucose homeostasis, and accordingly, under obesity conditions, reduction of GLUT4 gene expression is directly related to insulin resistance development. Inflammatory cytokines produced by the adipose tissue including TNF-alpha, IL-6 etc have been related to reduce GLUT4 expression and defective GLUT4 is an underlying cause of NIDDM.
