General annotation (Comments)

Function

Functions as a specific ammonium transporter. Ref.2 Ref.8

Subunit structure

Interacts (via C-terminus) with ANK2 and ANK3; required for targeting to the basolateral membrane By similarity.

Subcellular location

Basolateral cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein By similarity Ref.5 Ref.6 Ref.7.

Tissue specificity

Expressed in kidney by connecting segments and collecting tubules. Also expressed in liver by perivenous hepatocytes. Expressed in the forestomach and the fundus of the stomach. Expressed in duodenum, jejunum, ileum and colon at the level of villous (at protein level). Specifically expressed in kidney where it is restricted to the epithelial linings of the convoluted tubules and the loop of Henle. Also detected in ovary. Expressed by hepatocytes and dermal hair follicles and papillae. Ref.1 Ref.5 Ref.6 Ref.7

Developmental stage

Detected in embryos at E15 and E17. Expressed in kidney, skin and liver of E16.5 embryos. Ref.1

Post-translational modification

N-glycosylated. Ref.1

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the ammonium transporter (TC 2.A.49) family. Rh subfamily. [View classification]
