The protein encoded by this gene is a high-affinity copper transporter found in the cell membrane. The encoded protein functions as a homotrimer to effect the uptake of dietary copper. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
GeneCards Summary for SLC31A1 Gene
SLC31A1 (Solute Carrier Family 31 (Copper Transporter), Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC31A1 include ethylmalonic encephalopathy and wilson disease. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Glucose / Energy Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include copper ion transmembrane transporter activity and copper uptake transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC31A2.
