The Michaelis-Menten constant for glucose and the inhibitor constant of 1-deoxyglucose for the intestinal mutarotase, glucose, 1-deoxyglucose system are consistent with the properties of the glucose transport system of intestine. The alleged sharing of the intestinal glucose transport system by 1-deoxyglucose does not contradict the mutarotase theory.
