Gene: Slc5a8 (solute carrier family 5 (iodide transporter), member 8) Mus musculus
Symbol: Slc5a8
Name: solute carrier family 5 (iodide transporter), member 8
RGD ID: 1556910
Description: Exhibits lactate transmembrane transporter activity; monocarboxylate:sodium symporter activity; and propionate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in propanoate transport and short-chain fatty acid import. Predicted to localize to brush border membrane. Is expressed in olfactory epithelium and rectum. Orthologous to human SLC5A8 (solute carrier family 5 member 8); PARTICIPATES IN nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; ciguatoxin CTX1B.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Ait; apical iodide transporter , putative; electrogenic sodium monocarboxylate cotransporter; MGC19357; SMC; SMCT; sodium-coupled monocarboxylate transporter 1; solute carrier family 5 member 8
