2. 2 Glucose molecules will join to form a compound with:

  • 1,4 glycosidic bonds
  • 1,6 glycosidic bonds
  • Hydrogen bonds
  • Ionic bonds

3. Class 1 glucose transporters include:

  • GLUT - 6,8,10,12
  • GLUT - 1,2,3,4
  • GLUT - 5,7,9,11
  • GLUT - 5,6,7,8

4. Class 2 glucose transporters include:

  • GLUT - 5,6,7,8
  • GLUT - 6,8,10,12
  • GLUT - 5,7,9,11
  • GLUT - 1,2,3,4

5. Exercise is seen as a direct medicine to type 2 diabetes because:

  • It translocates less GLUT-4 to the cell surface membranes of cells(muscle/adipose) which means glucose has less barriers as it enters the cells, hence glucose uptake increases
  • It translocates more GLUT-4 to the cell surface membranes of cells(muscle/adipose) which promotes more glucose transport into the cell
  • It translocates more GLUT-4 to the cell surface membranes of cells(muscle/adipose) which promotes more glucose transport out of the cell
  • It translocates less GLUT-4 to the cell surface membranes of cells(muscle/adipose) which means glucose has less barriers as it exits the cells, hence glucose efflux increases
