Gene: SLC51A (solute carrier family 51 subunit alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC51A
Name: solute carrier family 51 subunit alpha
Description: Predicted to have protein heterodimerization activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in bile acid secretion. Localizes to the basolateral plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; 8-bromo-3',5'-cyclic AMP; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
