Gene: SLC39A4 (solute carrier family 39 member 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC39A4
Name: solute carrier family 39 member 4
Description: Exhibits zinc ion transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular zinc ion homeostasis; signal transduction; and zinc ion import across plasma membrane. Localizes to cytoplasmic vesicle and plasma membrane. Implicated in acrodermatitis enteropathica.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: acrodermatitis enteropathica, zinc-deficiency type; AEZ; AWMS2; FLJ20327; MGC74741; solute carrier family 39 (zinc transporter), member 4; zinc transporter ZIP4; ZIP-4; ZIP4; zrt- and Irt-like protein 4
