SLC17 phosphate and organic anion transporter family C


« Hide

The SLC17 family are sometimes referred to as Type I sodium-phosphate co-transporters, alongside Type II (SLC34 family) and Type III (SLC20 family) transporters. Within the SLC17 family, however, further subgroups of organic anion transporters may be defined, allowing the accumulation of sialic acid in the endoplasmic reticulum and glutamate (e.g. L-glutamic acid) or nucleotides in synaptic and secretory vesicles. Topology modelling suggests 12 TM domains.
