Gene: SLC44A4 (solute carrier family 44 member 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC44A4
Name: solute carrier family 44 member 4
CRRD ID: 1349303
Description: Exhibits choline transmembrane transporter activity and thiamine pyrophosphate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in acetylcholine biosynthetic process; organic cation transport; and positive regulation of cell growth. Localizes to apical plasma membrane. Implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 72.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
