2.A.21.5.8
Sodium-coupled transporter, SLC5A11 or cupcake of 600 aas.  A mutant lacking this protein is insensitive to the nutritional value of sugars. It is most similar to mammalian sodium/monocarboxylate co-transporters.  It was prominently expressed in 10-13 pairs of R4 neurons of the ellipsoid body in the brain and functioned in these neurons for selecting appropriate foods (Dus et al. 2013).
