SLC5 family of sodium-dependent glucose transporters C


« Hide

The SLC5 family of sodium-dependent glucose transporters includes, in mammals, the Na+/substrate co-transporters for glucose (e.g. choline), D-glucose, monocarboxylates, myo-inositol and I- [2-5]. Members of the SLC5 and SLC6 families, along with other unrelated Na+ cotransporters (i.e. Mhp1 and BetP), share a common structural core that contains an inverted repeat of 5TM α-helical domains [1].


Families that contain targets of relevance to immunopharmacology are highlighted in blue
