Short name: Riboflavin_transptr

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry includes a group of animal riboflavin transporters, including SLC52A1, SLC52A2 and SLC52A3 from humans. They are plasma membrane proteins that transport vitamin B2 (riboflavin, RF) into cells [PMID: 25284511]. In case of infection by retroviruses, they act as cell receptors to retroviral envelopes similar to the porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV-A) [PMID: 19307586].
