A membrane transport protein of the glucose transporter superfamily from Leishmania enriettii is encoded by a family of tandemly repeated genes. The first gene in this tandem repeat codes for a structural isoform that contains a unique amino-terminal hydrophilic domain, probably located in the cytoplasm; the remainder of the protein is identical to the polyeptpide encoded by the internal genes in the tandem repeat. The unique isoform is represented by a distinct stable RNA.
