  1. Higher expression of GLUT-4 is associated with Oral Epithelial Dysplasia compared to Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma. PMID: 30049187
  2. Adipose tissue sirtuin 1 was related to insulin sensitivity. The relationship was still present after controlling for BMI, however, it disappeared after controlling for adipose tissue SLC2A4. Muscle sirtuin 1 was not related to insulin sensitivity. PMID: 29417372
  3. Results showed that GLUT4 translocation is regulated by TBC1D15 affecting glucose uptake. PMID: 30316925
  4. This review will summarize the effects of phytochemicals and their action on insulin signaling pathways accelerating GLUT4 translocation based on the current literature. PMID: 29382104

  8. Three polymorphisms (rs2654185, rs5415, and rs5417) in SLC2A4 were positively correlated with hip circumference and the rs2654185 locus was also positively associated with thigh circumference. Consumption of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids modifies associations between SCD, SLC2A4, and SREBF1 polymorphisms and anthropometric variables and metabolic phenotypes. PMID: 27467133
  9. increased GLUT4 expression in oral squamous cell carcinoma patients was significantly associated with a poor overall survival (OS, P = 0.035) and recurrence-free survival (RFS, P = 0.001).

  19. Study of the molecular mechanisms of GLUT4 regulation in adipocytes. PMID: 24656589

  28. Taken together, these results demonstrated that BCAR3 plays an important role in the signaling pathways of insulin leading to cell cycle progression and cytoskeleton reorganization, but not GLUT4 translocation. PMID: 24216110
  29. it is clear that pharmacogenomics has great potential to select subjects more or less prone to regulate the SLC2A4 gene and consequently glycemic homeostasis. PMID: 23746177
  30. Insulin-stimulated GLUT4 trafficking differs between t-tubules and sarcolemma; contraction-induced GLUT4 trafficking does not differ between membrane surfaces.[review] PMID: 23072821
