Keyword Ammonia transport

UniProtKB (92) rdf/xml obo
DefinitionProtein involved in the transport of ammonia/ammonium. Ammonia is an excellent nitrogen source for many bacteria, fungi, and plants, but it can be cytotoxic, especially for animal cells at high concentration. Its transport across cellular membranes is thus of high biological relevance. Ammonia (NH3) is a weak base and exists predominantly as the ammonium ion (NH4+) in biological fluids.
