Family

Na-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter (IPR004745)

Short name: Pi_cotranspt

Family relationships

Description

Na(+)-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter proteins belong to this group. The mammalian proteins are important for the resorption of phosphate by the kidney and may be involved in actively transporting phosphate into cells via sodium ion cotransport in the renal brush border membrane.
