This gene encodes a sodium bicarbonate cotransporter (NBC) involved in the regulation of bicarbonate secretion and absorption and intracellular pH. Mutations in this gene are associated with proximal renal tubular acidosis. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SLC4A4 Gene
SLC4A4 (Solute Carrier Family 4 Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene.

Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and anion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC4A5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SLC4A4 Gene
Electrogenic sodium/bicarbonate cotransporter with a Na(+):HCO3(-) stoichiometry varying from 1:2 to 1:3. May regulate bicarbonate influx/efflux at the basolateral membrane of cells and regulate intracellular pH.
[Isoform 2]: May have a higher activity than isoform 1.
