From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the ancient conserved domain containing protein family. Members of this protein family contain a cyclin box motif and have structural similarity to the cyclins. The encoded protein may play an important role in magnesium homeostasis by mediating the epithelial transport and renal reabsorption of Mg2+. Mutations in this gene are associated with renal hypomagnesemia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]
Divalent metal cation transporter. Mediates transport of divalent metal cations in an order of Mg(2+) > Co(2+) > Mn(2+) > Sr(2+) > Ba(2+) > Cu(2+) > Fe(2+) (By similarity).

- Hypomagnesemia, seizures, and mental retardation
Hypomagnesemia 6 (HOMG6): A renal disease characterized by severely lowered serum magnesium levels in the absence of other electrolyte disturbances. Affected individuals show an inappropriately normal urinary magnesium excretion, demonstrating a defect in tubular reabsorption. Age of clinical onset is highly variable and some affected individuals are asymptomatic. [MIM:613882]
Hypomagnesemia, seizures, and mental retardation (HOMGSMR): A disease characterized by renal wasting of magnesium, low serum magnesium, seizures, and variable degrees of delayed psychomotor development. [MIM:616418]
