Summary of SLC23A1

The gene codes for a protein, solute carrier family 23 member 1. It is one of the two transporters that aids with the absorption of vitamin C into the body and the distribution of it to the organs requires two sodium-dependent vitamin C transporters [R].

The Function of SLC23A1

Sodium/ascorbate cotransporter. Mediates electrogenic uptake of vitamin C, with a stoichiometry of 2 Na(+) for each ascorbate.
