TC 2.A.1.1.78 / O61060 The glucose transporter, LmGT3 (homologous to LmGT2 (1.A.1.1.75)). Two threonine residues located in the hydrophilic loops connecting TMSs 3 & 4 and 7 & 8 of GT3 prevent transport of D-ribose. Changing these two residues to alanine (as in GT2) allows transport of ribose. Thus, loops 3-4 and 7-8 partially determine substrate specificity from Leishmania mexicana

TC 2.A.1.1.76 / O76486 Glucose transporter, GT1. GT1, 2, and 3 are homologues. GT2 and GT3 transport ribose as well as glucose at different rates. GT3 transports ribose with 6-fold lower efficiency due to two threonines in GT3 that are alanines in GT2. They are in two loops between TMSs 3, 4, and 7, 8 (Naula et al., 2010). GT1 is expressed in the flagellar membrane and may be both a glucose transporter and sensor, allowing the parasites to enter the stationary phase when they deplete glucose although in the absence of the sensor, they lose viability from Leishmania mexicana
