Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Putative transmembrane polyol transporter; supports growth on and uptake of mannitol and sorbitol with moderate affinity when overexpressed in a strain deleted for hexose family members; minor hexose transport activity when overexpressed in a similar strain; induced by raffinose and galactose at pH 7.7 versus pH 4.7, repressed by high levels of glucose; HXT17 has a paralog, HXT13, that arose from a segmental duplication [Source:SGD;Acc:S000005355]


Chromosome XIV: 772,657-774,351 forward strand.
