Summaries for SLC17A5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC17A5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a membrane transporter that exports free sialic acids that have been cleaved off of cell surface lipids and proteins from lysosomes. Mutations in this gene cause sialic acid storage diseases, including infantile sialic acid storage disorder and and Salla disease, an adult form. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SLC17A5 Gene

SLC17A5 (Solute Carrier Family 17 Member 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC17A5 include salla disease and sialic acid storage disorder, infantile. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include sugar:proton symporter activity and sialic acid transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC17A8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC17A5 Gene

  • Transports glucuronic acid and free sialic acid out of the lysosome after it is cleaved from sialoglycoconjugates undergoing degradation, this is required for normal CNS myelination. Mediates aspartate and glutamate membrane potential-dependent uptake into synaptic vesicles and synaptic-like microvesicles. Also functions as an electrogenic 2NO(3)(-)/H(+) cotransporter in the plasma membrane of salivary gland acinar cells, mediating the physiological nitrate efflux, 25% of the circulating nitrate ions is typically removed and secreted in saliva.

  • Infantile sialic acid storage disorder (ISSD) [MIM:269920]: Severe form of sialic acid storage disease. Affected newborns exhibit visceromegaly, coarse features and failure to thrive immediately after birth. These patients have a shortened life span, usually less than 2 years. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10581036, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10947946}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Salla disease (SD) [MIM:604369]: Sialic acid storage disease (SASD). SASDs are autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorders characterized by hypotonia, cerebellar ataxia and mental retardation. They are caused by a defect in the metabolism of sialic acid which results in increased urinary excretion of unconjugated sialic acid, specifically N-acetylneuraminic acid. Enlarged lysosomes are seen on electron microscopic studies. Clinical symptoms of SD present usually at age less than 1 year and progression is slow. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10581036, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10947946, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12794687, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21781115}.
