Beta cells of pancreas have glut 1 or 2 receptors?

The glucose transporter proteins found in beta cells of the pancreas are primarily Glucose Transporter 2 (GLUT2). GLUT2 is responsible for transporting glucose into the beta cells, which are important for sensing blood glucose levels and secreting insulin accordingly.

GLUT1, on the other hand, is found in various tissues and cells throughout the body and is not the primary transporter in pancreatic beta cells. It is commonly found in cells that have a constant need for glucose, such as red blood cells and the cells lining the blood-brain barrier.

So, to answer your question, beta cells of the pancreas predominantly have GLUT2 receptors for glucose transport.
