• Official Full Name
  • solute carrier family 15 (oligopeptide transporter), member 1
  • Background
  • This gene encodes an intestinal hydrogen peptide cotransporter that is a member of the solute carrier family 15. The encoded protein is localized to the brush border membrane of the intestinal epithelium and mediates the uptake of di- and tripeptides from the lumen into the enterocytes. This protein plays an important role in the uptake and digestion of dietary proteins. This protein also facilitates the absorption of numerous peptidomimetic drugs.

Protein Function

SLC15A1 has several biochemical functions, for example, peptide:proton symporter activity, proton-dependent oligopeptide secondary active transmembrane transporter activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by SLC15A1 itself. We selected most functions SLC15A1 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with SLC15A1. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
