    basic FUNCTION
  • liver specific transport protein
  • play crucial roles in the renal secretion of various drugs
  • facilitative transporter for cGMP and other guanine nucleotides
  • may be involved in the regulation of cellular metabolism through the transport of short chain fatty acid propionate in the kidneys and the liver
  • operates as glutamate efflux transporter, and catalyses uptake of orotic acid
  • SLC22A7 is a likely relevant creatinine transporter and further challenging the traditional view that creatinine is solely transported by a cationic pathway
  • important role of SLC22A7 in renal secretion and possible reabsorption of creatinine
  • is emerging as an important drug transporter because of its expression in both the liver and kidney, two major eliminating organs, and its ability to transport not only a wide variety of xenobiotics but also numerous physiologically important endogenous compounds
  • marked interindividual variability likely in the hepatic expression of SLC22A7/SLC22A9, which may contribute to the pharmacokinetic variability of their substrates

    protein
  • interaction of SLC22A7 and sodium taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide (SLC10A1) with antineoplastic drugs
  • specific transport mechanism for Nicotinic acid (NA) uptake in the liver, suggesting that SLC22A7 has a critical role in its physiological and pharmacological functions
