Urea transporter, erythrocyte is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC14A1 gene.[4][5]


Function[edit]

The SLC14A1 codes for a urea transporter (UTB) that is expressed in erythrocytes and kidney. SLC14A2 and SLC14A1 constitute solute carrier family 14. UTB proteins constitute the Kidd antigen system.
