Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; monocarboxylic acid transmembrane transporter activity; and organic cyclic compound binding activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to nutrient; glucose homeostasis; and regulation of insulin secretion. Localizes to synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia 7. Orthologous to human SLC16A1 (solute carrier family 16 member 1).
