Gene information for SLCO1B1 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID10599
Official gene symbolSLCO1B1
Full namesolute carrier organic anion transporter family, member 1B1
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a liver-specific member of the organic anion transporter family. The encoded protein is a transmembrane receptor that mediates the sodium-independent uptake of numerous endogenous compounds including bilirubin, 17-beta-glucuronosyl estradiol and leukotriene C4. This protein is also involved in the removal of drug compounds such as statins, bromosulfophthalein and rifampin from the blood into the hepatocytes. Polymorphisms in the gene encoding this protein are associated with impaired transporter function. [provided by RefSeq]
