Protein

Monocarboxylate transporter 4

Gene

SLC16A3

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Proton-linked monocarboxylate transporter. Catalyzes the rapid transport across the plasma membrane of many monocarboxylates such as lactate, pyruvate, branched-chain oxo acids derived from leucine, valine and isoleucine, and the ketone bodies acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetate (By similarity).By similarity

Caution

Was initially assigned as monocarboxylate transporter 3 (MCT3) (PubMed:9425115). However, it was later shown that it corresponds to monocarboxylate transporter 4 (MCT4).1 Publication
