We report here the first identification and structural characterization of a eukaryotic protein with homology to the bacterial MgtE family of potential Mg(2+) transporters. This human protein, denoted solute carrier family 41 member 1 (SLC41A1), consists of 513 amino acids with an estimated molecular weight of 56kDa. Computer analysis of the protein structure reveals that the protein consists of 10 putative transmembrane domains and includes two distinct domains highly homologous to the… CONTINUE READING
