GeneCards Summary for SLC47A1 Gene
SLC47A1 (Solute Carrier Family 47 Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Glucose / Energy Metabolism and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include antiporter activity and monovalent cation:proton antiporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC47A2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC47A1 Gene
Solute transporter for tetraethylammonium (TEA), 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP), cimetidine, N-methylnicotinamide (NMN), metformin, creatinine, guanidine, procainamide, topotecan, estrone sulfate, acyclovir, ganciclovir and also the zwitterionic cephalosporin, cephalexin and cephradin. Seems to also play a role in the uptake of oxaliplatin (a new platinum anticancer agent). Able to transport paraquat (PQ or N,N-dimethyl-4-4-bipiridinium); a widely used herbicid. Responsible for the secretion of cationic drugs across the brush border membranes.
