From NCBI Gene:

This gene is a candidate tumor suppressor gene. It is located within a homozygously deleted region of a metastatic prostate cancer. The gene is expressed in most nonlymphoid human tissues including prostate, lung, liver, and colon. Expression was also detected in many epithelial tumor cell lines. Two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt:

Magnesium transporter (PubMed:19717468). May be involved in N-glycosylation through its association with N-oligosaccharyl transferase (PubMed:24685145).
