GeneCards Summary for SLC25A28 Gene
SLC25A28 (Solute Carrier Family 25 (Mitochondrial Iron Transporter), 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).
