Monosacharide transporters in small intestine

Postby siroma » Sat Aug 18, 2007 8:30 pm

Hi!

Which monosachharides can be transported to blood from small intestine?
Glucose, Fructose, Mannose, Fucose are ones known to me.

What about allose, atrose, other aldohexoses?
What about ketohexoses, like psicose, sorbose?
What about pentoses, tetroses, trioses?

Also,
"No cell surface transporters specific for galactose, amino sugars, or sialic acids are known in higher organisms."

Please, make some order in my brain.
Thanks!

I'm going to go with all of them can be transported, and I dont think it's specific.
