SLC26 anion exchangers in uterine epithelial cells and spermatozoa: clues from the past and hints to the future.


The solute carrier 26 (SLC26) family emerges as a distinct class of anion transporters with its members SLC26A3 (Slc26a3) and SLC26A6 (Slc26a6) reported to be electrogenic Cl(-)/HCO3(-) exchangers. While it is known that uterine fluid has high HCO3(-) content and that HCO3(-) is essential for sperm capacitation, the molecular mechanisms underlying the… (More)
