Summaries for SLC5A1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC5A1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the sodium-dependent glucose transporter (SGLT) family. The encoded integral membrane protein is the primary mediator of dietary glucose and galactose uptake from the intestinal lumen. Mutations in this gene have been associated with glucose-galactose malabsorption. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]

GeneCards Summary for SLC5A1 Gene

SLC5A1 (Solute Carrier Family 5 Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC5A1 include glucose/galactose malabsorption and renal glucosuria. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glycosaminoglycan metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and glucose:sodium symporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC5A10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC5A1 Gene

  • Actively transports glucose into cells by Na(+) cotransport with a Na(+) to glucose coupling ratio of 2:1. Efficient substrate transport in mammalian kidney is provided by the concerted action of a low affinity high capacity and a high affinity low capacity Na(+)/glucose cotransporter arranged in series along kidney proximal tubules.

  • Congenital glucose/galactose malabsorption (GGM) [MIM:606824]: Intestinal monosaccharide transporter deficiency. It is an autosomal recessive disorder manifesting itself within the first weeks of life. It is characterized by severe diarrhea and dehydration which are usually fatal unless glucose and galactose are eliminated from the diet. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10036327, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11406349, ECO:0000269 PubMed:2008213, ECO:0000269 PubMed:8195156}.
