UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SLC25A44 Gene
Mitochondrial solute transporter which transports branched-chain amino acid (BCAA; valine, leucine and isoleucine) into mitochondria in brown adipose tissue (BAT) (By similarity). BAT is involved in BCAA catabolism and actively utilizes BCAA in the mitochondria for thermogenesis (PubMed:31435015).
