Gene: Slc30a8 (solute carrier family 30 member 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc30a8
Name: solute carrier family 30 member 8
Description: Predicted to have protein homodimerization activity and zinc ion transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including insulin secretion; ion homeostasis; and positive regulation of insulin secretion. Localizes to the cytoplasmic vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human SLC30A8 (solute carrier family 30 member 8); INTERACTS WITH aldehydo-D-glucose; bisphenol A; D-glucose.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC299903; solute carrier family 30 (zinc transporter), member 8; zinc transporter 8; ZnT-8
