GeneCards Summary for SLC24A4 Gene

SLC24A4 (Solute Carrier Family 24 (Sodium/Potassium/Calcium Exchanger), Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC24A4 include amelogenesis imperfecta, type iia5 and hypocalcified amelogenesis imperfecta. Among its related pathways are Visual Cycle in Retinal Rods and The phototransduction cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include symporter activity and antiporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC24A2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC24A4 Gene

  • Transports 1 Ca(2+) and 1 K(+) in exchange for 4 Na(+). Controls the rapid response termination and proper regulation of adaptation in olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) which subsequently influences how odor information is encoded and perceived. May play a role in calcium transport during amelogenesis (By similarity).

Variants for SLC24A4 Gene

Polymorphic Variants from UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC24A4 Gene

Q8NFF2-NCKX4_HUMAN
Genetic variants in SLC24A4 define the skin/hair/eye pigmentation variation locus 6 (SHEP6) [MIM:210750]. Hair, eye and skin pigmentation are among the most visible examples of human phenotypic variation, with a broad normal range that is subject to substantial geographic stratification. In the case of skin, individuals tend to have lighter pigmentation with increasing distance from the equator. By contrast, the majority of variation in human eye and hair color is found among individuals of European ancestry, with most other human populations fixed for brown eyes and black hair
