GeneCards Summary for SLC25A33 Gene
SLC25A33 (Solute Carrier Family 25 Member 33) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC25A33 include Orofaciodigital Syndrome Viii and Schnyder Corneal Dystrophy. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include pyrimidine nucleotide transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC25A36.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SLC25A33 Gene
Mitochondrial transporter that imports/exports pyrimidine nucleotides into and from mitochondria (PubMed:25320081). Transports preferentially uracil, thymine, and cytosine (deoxy)nucleoside di- and triphosphates by an antiport mechanism (PubMed:25320081). Also transports guanine but not adenine (deoxy)nucleotides (PubMed:25320081). Is inhibited strongly by pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, 4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline, tannic acid, and mercurials (mercury dichloride, mersalyl acid, p-hydroxymercuribenzoate) (PubMed:25320081). Participates in mitochondrial genome maintenance, regulation of mitochondrial membrane potential and mitochondrial respiration (PubMed:20453889). Upon INS or IGF1 stimulation regulates cell growth and proliferation by controlling mitochondrial DNA replication and transcription, the ratio of mitochondria-to nuclear-encoded components of the electron transport chain resulting in control of mitochondrial ROS production (PubMed:20453889, PubMed:17596519). Participates in dendritic cell endocytosis and may associate with mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (PubMed:14715278).
