Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have lactate transmembrane transporter activity and pyruvate transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in plasma membrane lactate transport and pyruvate transmembrane transport. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and integral component of postsynaptic density membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; integumental system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human SLC16A7 (solute carrier family 16 member 7).
