Glucose Transporter Type 1 definition: A ubiquitously expressed glucose transporter that is important for constitutive, basal GLUCOSE transport. It is predominately expressed in ENDOTHELIAL CELLS and ERYTHROCYTES at the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER and is responsible for GLUCOSE entry into the BRAIN.
Glucose Transporter Type 1, Erythrocyte/Brain definition: GLUT1 is an integral membrane glycoprotein involved in transporting glucose into most cells. It is consistently overexpressed in endometrial adenocarcinomas and atypical hyperplasia, but not in typical hyperplasia. Immunostaining for GLUT1 may distinguish benign endometrial hyperplasia from potentially malignant hyperplasia. GLUT1 immunoreactivity in endometrial hyperplasia appears to be a useful indicator of high risk for development of endometrial carcinoma. (from Medscape)
