Summaries for SLC30A6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC30A6 Gene

  • Zinc functions as a cofactor for numerous enzymes, nuclear factors, and hormones and as an intra- and intercellular signal ion. Members of the zinc transporter (ZNT)/SLC30 subfamily of the cation diffusion facilitator family, such as SLC30A6, permit cellular efflux of zinc (Seve et al., 2004 [PubMed 15154973]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SLC30A6 Gene

SLC30A6 (Solute Carrier Family 30 (Zinc Transporter), Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include zinc ion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC30A7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC30A6 Gene

  • Zinc-efflux transporter which allocates the cytoplasmic zinc to the trans-Golgi network (TGN) as well as the vesicular compartment.
