Family

Magnesium transporter (IPR018937)

Short name: Magnesium_transport

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents a novel family of membrane magnesium transporters (MMgT) [PMID: 18057121]. The proteins, MMgT1 and MMgT2, are localised to the Golgi complex and post-Golgi vesicles, including the early endosomes, suggesting that they may provide regulated pathways for Mg2+ transport in the Golgi and post-Golgi organelles of epithelium-derived cells [PMID: 18057121].
