Entrez Gene Summary for SLC25A38 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the mitochondrial carrier family. The encoded protein is required during erythropoiesis and is important for the biosynthesis of heme. Mutations in this gene are the cause of autosomal congenital sideroblastic anemia.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for SLC25A38 Gene

SLC25A38 (Solute Carrier Family 25, Member 38) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC25A38 include anemia, sideroblastic, pyridoxine-refractory, autosomal recessive and adult-onset autosomal recessive sideroblastic anemia.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC25A38 Gene

  • Mitochondrial carrier required during erythropoiesis. Probably involved in the biosynthesis of heme, possibly by facilitating 5-aminolevulinate (ALA) production. May act by importing glycine into mitochondria or by exchanging glycine for ALA across the mitochondrial inner membrane.

Disorders for SLC25A38 Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for SLC25A38 Gene (610819)


  • Anemia, sideroblastic, pyridoxine-refractory, autosomal recessive (PRARSA) [MIM:205950]: A form of sideroblastic anemia not responsive to pyridoxine. Sideroblastic anemia is characterized by anemia of varying severity, hypochromic peripheral erythrocytes, systemic iron overload secondary to chronic ineffective erythropoiesis, and the presence of bone marrow ringed sideroblasts. Sideroblasts are characterized by iron-loaded mitochondria clustered around the nucleus. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19412178}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
