SLC13A5 gene

solute carrier family 13 member 5

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a protein belonging to the solute carrier family 13 group of proteins. This family member is a sodium-dependent citrate cotransporter that may regulate metabolic processes. Mutations in this gene cause early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 25. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2014]

From UniProt:

High-affinity sodium/citrate cotransporter that mediates citrate entry into cells. The transport process is electrogenic; it is the trivalent form of citrate rather than the divalent form that is recognized as a substrate. May facilitate the utilization of circulating citrate for the generation of metabolic energy and for the synthesis of fatty acids and cholesterol.

  • Epileptic encephalopathy, early infantile, 25

From UniProt:

Epileptic encephalopathy, early infantile, 25 (EIEE25): A disease characterized by seizures appearing in the first days of life, subclinical epileptic status, and recognizable EEG patterns with bilateral, multifocal status epilepticus. Patients have profound or severe delayed development with lack of speech, and most patients do not acquire the ability to sit. Additional variable features include axial hypotonia, peripheral hypertonia, and abnormal involuntary movements such as dystonia and choreoathetosis. [MIM:615905]
