Sequence in raw or FASTA format:
SLC30A10 solute carrier family 30, member 10 [
Homo sapiens (human)]
Gene Symbol SLC30A10
Entrez Gene ID
Full Name solute carrier family 30, member 10
Synonyms HMDPC, ZNT10, ZNT8, ZRC1, ZnT-10
General protein information
Gene Type protein-coding
Homo sapiens (human)
Chromosome:1 Map Location:1q41
Summary This gene is highly expressed in the liver and is inducible by manganese. Its protein product appears to be critical in maintaining manganese levels, and has higher specificity for manganese than zinc. Loss of function mutations appear to result in a pleomorphic phenotype, including dystonia and adult-onset parkinsonism. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene.
