GeneCards Summary for SLC9A5 Gene
SLC9A5 (Solute Carrier Family 9 Member A5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC9A5 include Episodic Kinesigenic Dyskinesia 1 and Episodic Kinesigenic Dyskinesia 2. Among its related pathways are Sweet Taste Signaling and ADP signalling through P2Y purinoceptor 12. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include solute:proton antiporter activity and sodium:proton antiporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC9A3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC9A5 Gene
Involved in pH regulation to eliminate acids generated by active metabolism or to counter adverse environmental conditions. Major proton extruding system driven by the inward sodium ion chemical gradient. Plays an important role in signal transduction (By similarity).
