Newswise — Article title: SLC26A7 constitutes the thiocyanate-selective anion conductance of the basolateral membrane of the retinal pigment epithelium

Authors: Xu Cao, Manoocher Soleimani, Bret A. Hughes

From the authors: “These findings establish SLC26A7 as the SCN−-selective conductance of the [retinal pigment epithelium] basolateral membrane and provide new insight into the physiology of an anion channel that may participate in anion transport and pH regulation by the [retinal pigment epithelium].” 

This study is highlighted as one of October’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
