2.A.1.1.30
Low affinity, constitutive, glucose (hexose; xylose) uniporter, Hxt4 (LGT1; Rag1) (also transports arsenic trioxide [As(OH)3] as do Hxtl, 3, 5, 7 and 9) (Liu et al., 2004).  The Kluyveromyces lactis ortholog is 73% identical and is similarly regulated (Rolland et al. 2006). Key residues for efficient glucose transport by the hexose transporter CgHxt4 in the high sugar fermentation yeast Candida glycerinogenes.have been identified (Qiao et al. 2021).
