SLC24A4 gene

solute carrier family 24 member 4

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a member of the potassium-dependent sodium/calcium exchanger protein family. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]

From UniProt:

Transports 1 Ca(2+) and 1 K(+) in exchange for 4 Na(+). Controls the rapid response termination and proper regulation of adaptation in olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) which subsequently influences how odor information is encoded and perceived. May play a role in calcium transport during amelogenesis.

  • Amelogenesis imperfecta, hypomaturation type IIA5
  • Skin/hair/eye pigmentation, variation in, 6

From UniProt:

Amelogenesis imperfecta, hypomaturation type, 2A5 (AI2A5): A defect of enamel formation. The disorder involves both primary and secondary dentitions. The teeth have a shiny agar jelly appearance and the enamel is softer than normal. Brown pigment is present in middle layers of enamel. [MIM:615887]
