Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable anion transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in ossification and sulfate transmembrane transport. Predicted to be located in apical plasma membrane and microvillus membrane. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Used to study diastrophic dysplasia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in bone disease (multiple). Orthologous to human SLC26A2 (solute carrier family 26 member 2).
