This protein family covers solute carriers that are Major Facilitator Superfamily (MFS) proteins [3,6], but are not named within the existing SLC system as recommended by the HUGO Nomenclature Committee (HGNC). The majority of MFS proteins belong to the solute carrier (SLC) superfamily, and others such as SV2A listed here belong to the atypical SLCs [4-5]. The atypical SLCs share sequence similarities and phylogenetic ancestry with SLCs, and can be classified in to 15 subfamilies (atypical MFS transporter families (AMTF1-15)) based on phylogenetic, sequence and structural analyses [4].
