Gene: SLC5A8 (solute carrier family 5 member 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC5A8
Name: solute carrier family 5 member 8
CRRD ID: 1352176
Description: Predicted to have organic acid:sodium symporter activity and short-chain fatty acid transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in propanoate transport; short-chain fatty acid import; and sodium ion transport. Localizes to extracellular exosome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AIT; apical iodide transporter; electrogenic sodium monocarboxylate cotransporter; MGC125354; SMCT; SMCT1; sodium iodide-related cotransporter; sodium-coupled monocarboxylate transporter 1; solute carrier family 5 (iodide transporter), member 8; solute carrier family 5 (sodium/monocarboxylate cotransporter), member 8
