SLC5A8/SMCT1 (Solute Carrier family 5, member 8) is a member of the solute carrier family of multi-pass membrane proteins. SLC5A8 has been shown to transport iodide by a passive mechanism. It also transports monocarboxylates and short-chain fatty acids by a sodium-coupled mechanism. SLC5A8 nuclear translocation and loss of expression are associated with poor outcome in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (1). It may be responsible for the absorption of D-lactate and monocarboxylate drugs from the intestinal tract.
