Solute carrier family 13 (sodium-dependent citrate transporter), member 5 also known as the Na+/citrate cotransporter is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC13A5 gene.[1]

Function

SLC13A5 is a tricarboxylate plasma transporter with a preference for citrate.[1]

Clinical significance

In 2014, by means of exome sequencing it was determined that a genetic mutation of the SLC13A5 gene is the cause of an extremely rare citrate transporter disorder.[2]

Mutations in SLC13A5 cause autosomal recessive epileptic encephalopathy with seizure onset in the first days of life.[2] Those afflicted suffer from seizures, global developmental delay, movement disorder and hypotonia.
