DESCRIPTION
Also known as SC5AC_MOUSE, Slc5a12, Smct2. Acts as an electroneutral and low-affinity sodium (Na(+))-dependent sodium-coupled solute transporter. Catalyzes the transport across the plasma membrane of many monocarboxylates such as lactate, pyruvate, nicotinate, propionate, butyrate and beta-D-hydroxybutyrate. May be responsible for the first step of reabsorption of monocarboxylates from the lumen of the proximal tubule of the kidney and the small intestine. May play also a role in monocarboxylates transport in the retina. Mediates electroneutral uptake of lactate, with a stoichiometry of 2 Na(+) for each lactate.
