From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the transport of phosphate into the mitochondrial matrix, either by proton cotransport or in exchange for hydroxyl ions. The protein contains three related segments arranged in tandem which are related to those found in other characterized members of the mitochondrial carrier family. Both the N-terminal and C-terminal regions of this protein protrude toward the cytosol. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been isolated. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Transport of phosphate groups from the cytosol to the mitochondrial matrix. Phosphate is cotransported with H(+). May play a role regulation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP).
