    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • mediating movement of lactate and pyruvate across membranes
  • involved in the transport of triiodothyronine into neurons, very active and specific thyroid hormone transporter
  • with SLC16A10, facilitate iodothyronine uptake as well as efflux
  • may play an important role in the transport of thyroid hormone in the brain, which is essential for the crucial action of the hormone during brain development
  • may be important to modulate thyroid hormone effects on osteoblast differentiation and on bone development and metabolism
