FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] SLC5A8 has been shown to transport iodide by a passive mechanism (Rodriguez et al., 2002 [PubMed 12107270]) and monocarboxylates and short-chain fatty acids by a sodium-coupled mechanism (Gopal et al., 2004 [PubMed 15322102]). In kidney, SLC5A8 functions as a high-affinity sodium-coupled lactate transporter involved in reabsorption of lactate and maintenance of blood lactate levels (Thangaraju et al., 2006 [PubMed 16873376]).[supplied by OMIM, Dec 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele exhibit increased lactate concentrations in the saliva and urine. [provided by MGI curators]
