SLC36A1 encodes the human gene, Solute carrier family 36 (proton/amino acid symporter), member 1. It may also be known as: Proton-coupled amino acid transporter 1; hPAT1; Solute carrier family 36 member 1; Proton/amino acid transporter 1; Dct1; LYAAT1; PAT1; TRAMD3. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 476 and a mass of 53.1 kDa. SLC36A1 is a member of the Amino acid/polyamine transporter 2 family. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
