Gene: SLC22A4 (solute carrier family 22 member 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC22A4
Name: solute carrier family 22 member 4
Description: Exhibits PDZ domain binding activity; carnitine transmembrane transporter activity; and cation:cation antiporter activity. Involved in carnitine transport. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane and mitochondrion. Implicated in rheumatoid arthritis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
