GeneCards Summary for SLC7A1 Gene
SLC7A1 (Solute Carrier Family 7 Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC7A1 include Tinea Capitis and Dermatophytosis. Among its related pathways are Amino acid transport across the plasma membrane and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include amino acid transmembrane transporter activity and L-ornithine transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC7A2.
