Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: SLC4A1 is probably a multifunctional transport protein responsible for transport of glucose, anions (Cl-/HCO3-), Sulfate and water.

Substrate In Vivo Evidence: SLC4A1 is very important in determining red cell homeostasis and cell shape. Its genetic variation is involved in erythrocyte and kidney disorders such as hereditary spherocytosis and distal renal tubular acidosis (Genetic deficiency in cattle, knockout mice, Zebrafish mutant) Inaba, M.; Yawata, A.; Koshino, I.; Sato, K.; Takeuchi, M.; Takakuwa, Y.; Manno, S.; Yawata, Y.; Kanzaki, A.; Sakai, J.; Ban, A.; Ono, K.; Maede, Y.

Cell-specific mitotic defect and dyserythropoiesis associated with erythroid band 3 deficiency. Nature Genet. 34: 59-64, 2003. Tissue Distribution Evidence: SLC4A1 is considered to be the unique anion exchanger expressed in erythrocytes. In rats, SLC4A1 mRNAs were observed in many tissues but high levels of expression occurred only in spleen and kidney. Five transcripts, ranging in size from 3.6 to 4.9 kilobases, were detected, including three that are expressed in heart. (Northern blotting) Kudrycki, K. E.; Newman, P. R.; Schull, G.

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript

The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.)
