Short name: ThTr-1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Thiamine transporter 1 (ThTr-1, also known as SLC19A2) belongs to the reduced folate carrier (RFC) transporter family (IPR002666). However, it has no folate transport activity. It is a high-affinity transporter for the intake of thiamine [PMID: 11731220].

Also included in this group is the folate-like transporter 2 from the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, which does not appear to act as a folate transporter [PMID: 17475669].
