Unless otherwise stated all data on this page refer to the human proteins. Gene information is provided for human (Hs), mouse (Mm) and rat (Rn).
A mouse stromal cell cDNA library was used to clone C2.3 , later termed Rag1-activating protein 1, with a sequence homology predictive of a 4TM topology. The plant orthologues, termed SWEETs, appear to be 7 TM proteins, with extracellular N-termini, and the capacity for bidirectional flux of D-glucose . Expression of mouse SWEET in the mammary gland was suggestive of a role in Golgi lactose synthesis .
