Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Mitochondrial glycine transporter; required for the transport of glycine into mitochondria for initiation of heme biosynthesis, with YMC1 acting as a secondary transporter; homolog of human SLC25A38, a mitochondrial glycine transporter associated with nonsyndromic autosomal recessive congenital sideroblastic anemia; human SLC25A38 can complement the heme deficiency associated with the null mutant; GFP-fusion protein is induced in response to the DNA-damaging agent MMS [Source:SGD;Acc:S000002277]


Chromosome IV: 246,689-247,612 reverse strand.
