SLC35A1 encodes a CMP-sialic acid transporter that is localized in the Golgi membrane. It is also known as CST. The encoded protein has multiple membrane-spanning regions. CMP-sialic acid is transported into the Golgi lumen and used as a glycosyl donor for glycan synthesis. Mutation of SLC35A1 is associated with congenital disorder of glycosylation type 2F.
