External Ids for SLC30A10 Gene
This gene is highly expressed in the liver and is inducible by manganese. Its protein product appears to be critical in maintaining manganese levels, and has higher specificity for manganese than zinc. Loss of function mutations appear to result in a pleomorphic phenotype, including dystonia and adult-onset parkinsonism. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for SLC30A10 Gene
SLC30A10 (Solute Carrier Family 30, Member 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC30A10 include dystonia/parkinsonism, hypermanganesemia, polycythemia, and chronic liver disease and hypermanganesemia with dystonia, polycythemia, and cirrhosis. GO annotations related to this gene include cation transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC30A4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC30A10 Gene
Plays a pivotal role in manganese transport. Manganese is an essential cation for the function of several enzymes, including some crucially important for the metabolism of neurotransmitters and other neuronal metabolic pathways.
