Mitochondrial serine transporter that mediates transport of serine into mitochondria, an important step of the one-carbon metabolism pathway. Mitochondrial serine is converted to glycine and formate, which then exits to the cytosol where it is used to generate the charged folates that serve as one-carbon donors. Transports both D-serine and L-serine. Also able to transport other amino-acids, such as alanine (By similarity). May be indirectly involved in the transport of a component required for iron utilization into or out of the mitochondria (By similarity).
