This target displays homology in the following species: Human: 100%
This gene encodes a member of the organic zwitterion transporter protein family which transports carnitine. The encoded protein has also been shown to transport anticancer drugs like bleomycin successful treatment has been correlated with the level of activity of this transporter in tumor cells.
