Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity and sodium:bicarbonate symporter activity. Involved in bicarbonate transport and sodium ion transport. Predicted to localize to the basolateral plasma membrane. Used to study renal tubular acidosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in renal tubular acidosis. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; metanephros; and spinal cord floor plate. Orthologous to human SLC4A4 (solute carrier family 4 member 4).
