Summation

The membrane-associated transporter protein SLC45A2 (melanoma antigen AIM1, MATP) shows sequence and structural similarity to sucrose transport proteins yet its actual physiological substrate and role is still unclear. Mutations in SLC45A2 cause misrouting of tyrosinase similar to the cellular phenotype of OCA2 and cause oculocutaneous albinism type 4 (OCA4) (Cullinane et al. 2011).
