Abstract

Recently, molecular studies have determined that the SLC17/type I phosphate transporters, a family of proteins initially characterized as phosphate carriers, mediate the transport of organic anions. While their role in phosphate transport remains uncertain, it is now clear that the transport of organic anions facilitated by this family of proteins is involved in diverse processes ranging from the vesicular storage of the neurotransmitter glutamate to the degradation and metabolism of glycoproteins.
