Mitochondrial pyruvate carrier (IPR005336)

Short name: MPC

Family relationships



This entry represents the mitochondrial pyruvate carrier proteins, including Mpc 1/2 and their homologues. They mediate the uptake of pyruvate into mitochondria [PMID: 22628558]. In humans, Mpc1 and Mpc2 associate to form an ~150-kilodalton complex in the inner mitochondrial membrane [PMID: 22628558].
