Previous studies have shown GLUT-1, GLUT-3, GLUT-4, GLUT-5, GLUT-8, GLUT-10, and GLUT-12 expressions in both the stria vascularis and the spiral ligament [14].
[14] showed that GLUT-1, GLUT-3, GLUT-5, GLUT-8, GLUT-10, and GLUT-12 were detected in both the stria vascularis and the spiral ligament and revealed that there were significant differences between the stria vascularis and the spiral ligament of GLUT-1, GLUT-4, GLUT-5, and GLUT-10 isoforms, which indicated GLUT-1, GLUT-4, GLUT-5, and GLUT-10 isoforms involved in glucose transport in the stria vascularis and the spiral ligament.
