    The insulin-responsive glucose transporter (GLUT4) is expressed at high levels in fat and skeletal muscle, which account for the majority of insulin-stimulated glucose uptake. However, GLUT4 is also expressed at lower levels in kidney and several other tissues. We have used a variety of protein...
