Literature associating SLC22A5 and amino acid metabolic disorder
Solute carrier family 22 (organic cation/carnitine transporter), member 5; Sodium-ion dependent, high affinity carnitine transporter. Involved in the active cellular uptake of carnitine. Transports one sodium ion with one molecule of carnitine. Also transports organic cations such as tetraethylammonium (TEA) without the involvement of sodium. Also relative uptake activity ratio of carnitine to TEA is 11.3; Solute carriers
