FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The absorption of vitamin C into the body and its distribution to organs requires two sodium-dependent vitamin C transporters. This gene encodes one of the two transporters. The encoded protein is active in bulk vitamin C transport involving epithelial surfaces. Previously, this gene had an official symbol of SLC23A2. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit abnormal ascorbate homeostasis and early postnatal lethality associated with lethargy and lack of gastric milk. Heterozygous mice of homozgous dams exhibit a similar phenotype. [provided by MGI curators]
