Sodium translocation by the iminoglycinuria associated imino transporter (SLC6A20)

Broer, Angelika; Balkrishna, Sarojini; Kottra, Gabor; Davis, Sarah; Oakley, Aaron; Broer, Stefan


The system IMINO transporter plays an essential role in the transport of proline and hydroxyproline in the intestine and kidney. Its molecular correlate has been identified and named SIT1 or IMINO (SLC6A20). Initial characterization of the transporter showed it to be Na+ and Cl--dependent, but the stoichiometry remained unresolved. Using homology modeling along the structure of the bacterial leucine transporter LeuT, we identified two highly conserved Na+-binding sites and a putative...[Show more]
