GeneCards Summary for SLC25A28 Gene

SLC25A28 (Solute Carrier Family 25 Member 28) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Mitochondrial iron-sulfur cluster biogenesis. An important paralog of this gene is SLC25A37.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC25A28 Gene

  • Mitochondrial iron transporter that mediates iron uptake. Probably required for heme synthesis of hemoproteins and Fe-S cluster assembly in non-erythroid cells. The iron delivered into the mitochondria, presumably as Fe(2+), is then probably delivered to ferrochelatase to catalyze Fe(2+) incorporation into protoprophyrin IX to make heme (By similarity).
