In the body, solute carrier organic anion transporter family member 1B3 (SLCO1B3) is expressed on the basolateral surfaces of hepatocytes and may play a role in the uptake of bilirubin (BIL), a breakdown product of heme that requires conjugation and excretion from the body. Defects in SLCO1B3 can cause hyperbilirubinemia, Rotor type (HBLRR; MIM:237450), an autosomal recessive form of primary conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Mild jaundice, not associated with hemolysis, develops shortly after birth or in childhood (van de Steeg et al. 2012, Sticova & Jirsa 2013, Keppler 2014).
