Family

Putative sodium bile acid cotransporter (IPR016833)

Short name: Put_Na-Bile_cotransptr

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family includes sodium/bile acid cotransporter 7 [PMID: 15932064] and other uncharacterised proteins with sodium bile acid cotransporter domain; they are found both in prokaryotes and eukaryotes.They are related to the human bile acid:sodium symporters, which are transmembrane proteins functioning in the liver in the uptake of bile acids from portal blood plasma, a process mediated by the co-transport of Na+ [PMID: 1961729].
