Summaries for SLC30A4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC30A4 Gene

  • Zinc is the second most abundant trace metal in the human body. It is an essential element, serving both a structural role, as in the formation of zinc fingers in DNA-binding proteins, and a catalytic role in metalloenzymes, such as pancreatic carboxypeptidases (e.g., MIM 114852), alkaline phosphatases (e.g., MIM 171760), various dehydrogenases, and superoxide dismutases (e.g., MIM 147450). SLC30A4, or ZNT4, belongs to the ZNT family of zinc transporters. ZNTs are involved in transporting zinc out of the cytoplasm and have similar structures, consisting of 6 transmembrane domains and a histidine-rich cytoplasmic loop (Huang and Gitschier, 1997 [PubMed 9354792]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SLC30A4 Gene

SLC30A4 (Solute Carrier Family 30 Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC30A4 include acrodermatitis enteropathica and enteropathica. GO annotations related to this gene include cation transmembrane transporter activity and zinc ion transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC30A1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC30A4 Gene

  • Probably involved in zinc transport out of the cytoplasm, maybe by sequestration into an intracellular compartment.
