description
The organic cation transporters comprise three SLC22 members, OCT1-3. They can transport a wide range of organic cations including weak bases. All transport by OCTs is electrogenic, sodium-independent and bidirectional. Two further organic cation transporters mediate transport of ergothioneine and carnitine (Koepsell H and Endou H, 2004)
