FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Polyspecific organic cation transporters in the liver, kidney, intestine, and other organs are critical for elimination of many endogenous small organic cations as well as a wide array of drugs and environmental toxins. This gene is one of three similar cation transporter genes located in a cluster on chromosome 6. The encoded protein contains twelve putative transmembrane domains and is a plasma integral membrane protein. It is found primarily in the kidney, where it may mediate the first step in cation reabsorption. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knockout allele are viable and fertile and display no obvious phenotypic abnormalities. No significant defects in the renal secretion of a model organic cation are observed. [provided by MGI curators]
