Entrez Gene Summary for SLC26A1 Gene

  • This gene is a member of a family of sulfate/anion transporter genes. Family members are well conserved in their genomic (number and size of exons) and protein (aa length among species) structures, but have markedly different tissue expression patterns. This gene is primarily expressed in the liver, pancreas, and brain. Three splice variants that encode different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SLC26A1 Gene

SLC26A1 (Solute Carrier Family 26 (Anion Exchanger), Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC26A1 include proximal renal tubular acidosis and mucopolysaccharidoses.
