Solute carrier family 16 (monocarboxylate transporter), member 7; Proton-coupled monocarboxylate transporter. Catalyzes the rapid transport across the plasma membrane of many monocarboxylates such as lactate, pyruvate, branched-chain oxo acids derived from leucine, valine and isoleucine, and the ketone bodies acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetate. Functions as high-affinity pyruvate transporter; Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Monocarboxylate porter (TC 2.A.1.13) family.
