Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable lactate transmembrane transporter activity and pyruvate transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in plasma membrane lactate transport and pyruvate transmembrane transport. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm; nucleoplasm; and plasma membrane. Predicted to be active in several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse. Predicted to be integral component of postsynaptic density membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; integumental system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human SLC16A7 (solute carrier family 16 member 7).
