UniProtKB description:  Slow, weak voltage-dependent S-type anion efflux channel involved in maintenance of anion homeostasis. Cl(-) efflux through SLAC1 causes membrane depolarization, which activates outward-rectifying K1 channels, leading to KCl and water efflux to reduce turgor further and cause stomatal closure, that reduces water loss and promotes leaf turgor. Essential for stomatal closure in response to CO(2), abscisic acid (ABA), ozone O(3), light/dark transitions, humidity change, calcium ions, hydrogen peroxide H(2)O(2), reactive oxygen species (ROS), and nitric oxide. Binds to the highly selective inward-rectifying potassium channels KAT1 and AKT2, and inhibits their activities. Functions as an essential negative regulator of inward potassium channels in guard cells. Essential for the efficient stomatal closure and opening in guard cells (PubMed:27002025). Involved in the local and/or systemic stomatal responses (e.g. stomatal closure) to light stress (PubMed:29463779).
