Family

Sodium-dependent phosphate transport protein (IPR003841)

Short name: Na/Pi_transpt

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of sodium-dependent phosphate transport proteins of the solute carrier family SLC34A [PMID: 12750889]. It includes mammalian type II renal Na+/Pi-cotransporters and other proteins from lower eukaryotes and bacteria, some of which are also Na+/Pi-cotransporters. In the kidney these proteins may be involved in actively transporting phosphate into cells via Na+ cotransport in the renal brush border membrane [PMID: 8327470].
