System T is a Na+-independent transport system that selectively transports aromatic amino acids. Here, we determined the structure of the human T-type amino-acid transporter-1 (TAT1) cDNA and gene (SLC16A10). The human TAT1 cDNA encoded a 515-amino-acid protein with 12 putative membrane-spanning domains. Human SLC16A10 was localized on human chromosome 6, mapped to 6q21-q22. SLC16A10 contains six exons spanning 136 kb. In contrast to rat TAT1, which is mainly present in the intestine, human… CONTINUE READING
