Gene: Slc39a5 (solute carrier family 39 member 5) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc39a5
Name: solute carrier family 39 member 5
RGD ID: 1310322
Description: Predicted to have zinc ion transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to zinc ion starvation; positive regulation of mRNA splicing, via spliceosome; and zinc ion import across plasma membrane. Predicted to localize to basolateral plasma membrane and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myopia. Orthologous to human SLC39A5 (solute carrier family 39 member 5); INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acetamide.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC362812; solute carrier family 39 (metal ion transporter), member 5; solute carrier family 39 (zinc transporter), member 5; zinc transporter ZIP5
