Which of the following best describes the absorption of glucose on the apical membrane of epithelial intestinal cells?
D. facilitated diffusion
E. simple diffusion
Best Answer : B . GLUT2.
Explanation : Absorption of glucose on the apical membrane of epithelial intestinal cells By the glucose cotransporter GLUT2.Actually Glucose is taken up into the intestinal epithelial cells across the apical membrane against its concentration gradient by the Na-glucose co-transporter(SGLUT1) after that it is then transported across the basolateral membrane to the interstitial fluid down its concentration gradient ( From higher concentration to lower concentration) by the glucose transporter GLUT2 and finally absorbed.....Thanks dear student
