Entrez Gene Summary for SLC39A14 Gene

  • Zinc is an essential cofactor for hundreds of enzymes. It is involved in protein, nucleic acid, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism, as well as in the control of gene transcription, growth, development, and differentiation. SLC39A14 belongs to a subfamily of proteins that show structural characteristics of zinc transporters (Taylor and Nicholson, 2003 [PubMed 12659941]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SLC39A14 Gene

SLC39A14 (Solute Carrier Family 39 (Zinc Transporter), Member 14) is a Protein Coding gene.
