SLCO1B3(redirected from SLC21A8)
SLCO1B3A gene on chromosome 12p12 that encodes a transporter which mediates Na+-independent uptake of organic anions—e.g., oestradiol, taurocholate, triiodothyronine, leukotriene C4, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate, methotrexate and sulfobromophthalein.
Defects in SLCO1B3 are a cause of Rotor syndrome.
