Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including anion transmembrane transporter activity; toxin transmembrane transporter activity; and urate transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in organic anion transport; urate metabolic process; and xenobiotic detoxification by transmembrane export across the plasma membrane. Predicted to be located in apical plasma membrane; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Predicted to be active in lysosome. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including liver and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in gout. Orthologous to human SLC17A3 (solute carrier family 17 member 3).
