FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] 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. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Peptide uptake in the intestine is substantially reduced in mice homozygous for a null mutation of this gene. [provided by MGI curators]
