Entrez Gene Summary for SLC35A3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a UDP-N-acetylglucosamine transporter found in the golgi apparatus membrane. In cattle, a missense mutation in this gene causes complex vertebral malformation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]

GeneCards Summary for SLC35A3 Gene

SLC35A3 (Solute Carrier Family 35 (UDP-N-Acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) Transporter), Member A3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC35A3 include arthrogryposis, mental retardation, and seizures and autism spectrum disorder-epilepsy-arthrogryposis syndrome.

Disorders for SLC35A3 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for SLC35A3 Gene (605632)


  • Arthrogryposis, mental retardation, and seizures (AMRS) [MIM:615553]: A disease characterized by arthrogryposis, mental retardation, autism spectrum disorder, and epilepsy. Additional features include limb malformations, distal joint involvement, microcephaly, retromicrognathia, and general muscle hypotonia. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24031089}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. In Golgi vesicles isolated from patient fibroblasts the transport of the respective nucleotide sugar is significantly reduced causing a massive decrease in the content of cell surface expressed highly branched N-glycans and a concomitant sharp increase of lower branched glycoforms.
