Secondary Information

Protein Function Proton-linked monocarboxylate transporter. May catalyze the transport of monocarboxylates across the plasma membrane.pivotal role in brain energy metabolism.MCT may play a role in the intestinal absorption of nateglinide. MCT may play a role in bumetanide’s brain penetration.
Biochemical Properties transport a small set of xenobiotics: bumetanide, nateglinide, probenecid, and prostaglandin F2α; a series of aglycone flavonoids have been identified as inhibitors.
Significance in milk involvement in the transport of short-chain monocarboxylates, aromatic amino acids, and thyroid hormones across the mammary alveolar epithelial cells to be utilized for milk synthesis and secretion in lactating cattle.
