Recombinant proteins for solute carrier family 22 member 8 are available from various sources. In humans, this protein has a Uniprot ID of Q8TCC7 and has an annotated function: 'Plays an important role in the excretion/detoxification of endogenous and exogenous organic anions, especially from the brain and kidney.' This protein is 542 amino acids in length and 59.9 kilodaltons in mass. It has been designated a subcellular localization as: cell membrane. This protein is encoded by the gene SLC22A8. Other names also exist, such as: solute carrier family 22 member 8, hOAT3, organic anion transporter 3, solute carrier family 22 (organic anion transporter), member 8. As many as 5 isoforms have been named. This protein is conserved in other species, including: mouse, rat.
