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. Two transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene, but only the longer variant encodes a functional transporter. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knockout allele are viable, healthy, and fertile but exhibit an impaired liver uptake and direct intestinal excretion of substrate organic cations. Mice homozygous for a different knockout allele show alterations in metformin disposition and its glucose-lowering effects. [provided by MGI curators]
