As inferred from rat Slc8a3 and mouse Akap1 (Akap121), SLC8A3 in a complex with AKAP1 exchanges cytosolic sodium ions for divalent calcium from the mitochondrial intermembrane space resulting in an efflux of calcium from the mitochondrion. The mitochondrial localization of SLC8A3 is controversial, however, and SLC8A3 has a limited tissue distribution.
