Previous Symbols for SLC17A9 Gene
This gene encodes a member of a family of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the transport of small molecules. The encoded protein participates in the vesicular uptake, storage, and secretion of adenoside triphosphate (ATP) and other nucleotides. A mutation in this gene was found in individuals with autosomal dominant disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis-8. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for SLC17A9 Gene
SLC17A9 (Solute Carrier Family 17 (Vesicular Nucleotide Transporter), Member 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC17A9 include porokeratosis 8, disseminated superficial actinic type and porokeratosis. GO annotations related to this gene include transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC17A8.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC17A9 Gene
Involved in vesicular storage and exocytosis of ATP. May accumulate ATP and other nucleotides in secretory vesicles such as adrenal chromaffin granules and synaptic vesicles.
