Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in urate metabolic process; urate transport; and xenobiotic detoxification by transmembrane export across the plasma membrane. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. 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).
