Protein

Solute carrier family 22 member 4

Gene

Slc22a4

Organism
Rattus norvegicus (Rat)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Sodium-ion dependent, low affinity carnitine transporter. Probably transports one sodium ion with one molecule of carnitine. Also transports organic cations such as tetraethylammonium (TEA) without the involvement of sodium. Relative uptake activity ratio of carnitine to TEA is 1.78.1 Publication

Miscellaneous

Inhibited by desipramin > DMA > procainamide > cimetidine.

Caution

It is unclear whether it transports carnitine in vivo.Curated

pH dependencei

Optimum pH is 8.0. At higher pH, transport activity decreases.1 Publication

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Expressed in intestine, liver and kidney. Weakly expressed in brain, thymus, lung, spleen, heart and skin. In brain, it is expressed in cerebellum, especially in the granular layer, in hippocampus and cortex. In kidney, it is expressed in cortex and medulla with relatively more abundance in the cortical-medullary junction. In heart, it is expressed in myocardium and valves. Expressed labyrinthine zone of the placenta.1 Publication
