Bile acid:sodium symporter (IPR004710)

Short name: Bilac:Na_transpt

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Functionally characterised members of the bile Acid:Na+ Symporter (BASS) family catalyze Na+:bile acid symport. These systems have been identified in intestinal, liver and kidney tissues of animals. These symporters exhibit broad specificity, taking up a variety of non bile organic compounds as well as taurocholate and other bile salts. Functionally uncharacterised homologues are found in plants and bacteria.
