S22A8_HUMAN (UniProt)

Gene names: SLC22A8, OAT3
Protein names and data: S22A8_HUMAN, Full=Solute carrier family 22 member 8, Full=Organic anion transporter 3;Short=hOAT3; Length: 542 a.a., Mass: 59856 Da,
fasta formatted sequence

Function: Plays an important role in the excretion/detoxification of endogenous and exogenous organic anions, especially from the brain and kidney. Involved in the transport basolateral of steviol, fexofenadine. Transports benzylpenicillin (PCG), estrone- 3-sulfate (E1S), cimetidine (CMD), 2,4-dichloro-phenoxyacetate (2,4-D), p-amino-hippurate (PAH), acyclovir (ACV) and ochratoxin (OTA)
Cellular location: Basolateral cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein (Potential). Note=Localizes on the brush border membrane of the choroid epithelial cells. Localizes to the basolateral membrane of the proximal tubular cells. Localizes on the abluminal and possibly, luminal membrane of the brain capillary endothelial cells (BCEC) (By similarity)
Tissue specificity: Expressed in kidney
