Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have ion transmembrane transporter activity and protein dimerization activity. Involved in fluid transport and ion homeostasis. Predicted to localize to apical plasma membrane; basolateral plasma membrane; and vesicle membrane. Is expressed in metanephros and vomeronasal organ. Used to study congenital hereditary endothelial dystrophy of cornea. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy; congenital hereditary endothelial dystrophy of cornea; and corneal dystrophy-perceptive deafness syndrome. Orthologous to human SLC4A11 (solute carrier family 4 member 11).
