OCTN is a small subfamily of membrane transport proteins that belongs to the larger SLC22 family. Two of the three members of the subfamily, namely, OCTN2 and OCTN1, are present in humans. Organic Cation Transporters Novel (OCTN) is a small subfamily of membrane transporters, which includes three members: OCTN1, 2, and 3. This subfamily, together with other five subfamilies, fall in the larger SLC22 family counting many proteins, mostly catalyzing organic cation and anion transport.
