Mitochondrial amino acid transporters can be subdivided on the basis of their substrates. Mitochondrial ornithine transporters play a role in the urea cycle by exchanging cytosolic ornithine (L-ornithine and D-ornithine) for mitochondrial citrulline (L-citrulline and D-citrulline) in equimolar amounts. Further members of the family include transporters of S-adenosylmethionine and carnitine.
