GeneCards Summary for SLC22A9 Gene
SLC22A9 (Solute Carrier Family 22 (Organic Anion Transporter), Member 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC22A9 include persistent fetal circulation syndrome. Among its related pathways are Statin Pathway - Generalized, Pharmacokinetics. GO annotations related to this gene include transmembrane transporter activity and sodium-independent organic anion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC22A12.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC22A9 Gene
Sodium-independent organic anion transporter which exhibits high specificity for sulfated conjugates of xenobiotics and steroid hormones. It is also specifically activated by 3 to 5 carbons-containing short-chain fatty acids/SCFAs, including propionate, butyrate and valerate. May operate the exchange of sulfated organic components against short-chain fatty acids/SCFAs at the sinusoidal membrane of hepatocytes.
