Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits anion transmembrane transporter activity; ankyrin binding activity; and hemoglobin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including anion transport; erythrocyte development; and negative regulation of urine volume. Localizes to the basolateral plasma membrane; cortical cytoskeleton; and cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane. Used to study hereditary spherocytosis type 4 and renal tubular acidosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital hemolytic anemia; hereditary spherocytosis; hereditary spherocytosis type 4; malaria; and renal tubular acidosis. Orthologous to human SLC4A1 (solute carrier family 4 member 1 (Diego blood group)).
