This gene encodes a member of the solute linked carrier 26 family of anion exchangers. Members of this family of proteins are essential for numerous cellular functions including homeostasis and intracellular electrolyte balance. The encoded protein is a sodium independent sulfate transporter that is sensitive to the anion exchanger inhibitor 4,4'-diisothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]
GeneCards Summary for SLC26A11 Gene
SLC26A11 (Solute Carrier Family 26 Member 11) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC26A11 include Mucopolysaccharidosis, Type Iiia and Mucopolysaccharidosis Iii.
