Gene: Slc39a4 (solute carrier family 39 member 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc39a4
Name: solute carrier family 39 member 4
RGD ID: 1306701
Description: Predicted to have zinc ion transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to zinc ion starvation; cellular zinc ion homeostasis; and zinc ion import across plasma membrane. Predicted to localize to apical plasma membrane; endosome; and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acrodermatitis enteropathica. Orthologous to human SLC39A4 (solute carrier family 39 member 4); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC300051; MGC156705; solute carrier family 39 (zinc transporter), member 4; zinc transporter ZIP4; ZIP-4; zrt- and Irt-like protein 4
