What is the official name of the SLC35C1 gene?

The official name of this gene is “solute carrier family 35 (GDP-fucose transporter), member C1.”

SLC35C1 is the gene's official symbol. The SLC35C1 gene is also known by other names, listed below.

What is the normal function of the SLC35C1 gene?

From NCBI Gene (

This gene encodes a GDP-fucose transporter that is found in the Golgi apparatus. Mutations in this gene result in congenital disorder of glycosylation type IIc. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]

From UniProt (

Involved in GDP-fucose import from the cytoplasm into the Golgi lumen.

How are changes in the SLC35C1 gene related to health conditions?

UniProt ( provides the following information about the SLC35C1 gene's known or predicted involvement in human disease.

Congenital disorder of glycosylation 2C (CDG2C): A multisystem disorder caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins. Congenital disorders of glycosylation result in a wide variety of clinical features, such as defects in the nervous system development, psychomotor retardation, dysmorphic features, hypotonia, coagulation disorders, and immunodeficiency. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions. The clinical features of CDG2C include mental retardation, short stature, facial stigmata, and recurrent bacterial peripheral infections with persistently elevated peripheral leukocytes. Biochemically, CDG2C is characterized by a lack of fucosylated glycoconjugates, including selectin ligands. The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.

NCBI Gene ( lists the following diseases or traits (phenotypes) known or believed to be associated with changes in the SLC35C1 gene.
