Mmgt1,2 transport Mg2+ from cytosol to Golgi lumen

Magnesium (Mg2+) is required for the catalytic activity of numerous metalloenzymes within a variety of subcellular organelles. Mouse membrane magnesium transporter 1 and 2 (Mmgt1 and 2) mediates the uptake of Mg2+ across the Golgi membrane (Goytain & Quamme 2008).
