FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the solute carrier/sulfate transporter family. The encoded protein is predominantly expressed in the intestine where it is essential for chloride absorption. Disruption of this gene results in chloride-rich diarrhea and compensatory up-regulation of ion-absorbing transporters. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2012]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a null allele display partial postnatal lethality; survivors are small and show lower luminal Cl-/HCO3- exchange activity, acidic chloridorrhea, volume depletion, upregulation of ion transporters, dilated colons, higher crypt proliferation and plasma aldosterone, and premature death.
