Gene: Slc26a8 (solute carrier family 26 member 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc26a8
Name: solute carrier family 26 member 8
CRRD ID: 1308898
Description: Predicted to have anion transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in chloride transport; oxalate transport; and sulfate transport. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spermatogenic failure 3. Orthologous to human SLC26A8 (solute carrier family 26 member 8); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3-chloropropane-1,2-diol; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LOC309646; solute carrier family 26 (anion exchanger), member 8; solute carrier family 26, member 8; testis anion transporter 1
