Gene: SLC40A1 (solute carrier family 40 member 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC40A1
Name: solute carrier family 40 member 1
Description: Exhibits iron ion transmembrane transporter activity and peptide hormone binding activity. Involved in cellular iron ion homeostasis and iron ion transmembrane transport. Localizes to basolateral plasma membrane; cytosol; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in hemochromatosis type 4.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
