Proton-coupled amino acid transporter 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC36A1 gene.[1][2][3]

This gene encodes a member of the eukaryote-specific amino acid/auxin permease (AAAP) 1 transporter family. The encoded protein functions as a proton-dependent, small amino acid transporter. This gene is clustered with related family members on chromosome 5q33.1.[3]
