Summary
Zinc is an essential cofactor for hundreds of enzymes. It is involved in protein, nucleic acid, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism, as well as in the control of gene transcription, growth, development, and differentiation. SLC39A6 belongs to a subfamily of proteins that show structural characteristics of zinc transporters (Taylor and Nicholson, 2003 [PubMed 12659941]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

mRNA and Protein(s)

  1. NM_001099406.2NP_001092876.1  zinc transporter ZIP6 isoform 2

    See identical proteins and their annotated locations for NP_001092876.1

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) differs in the 5' UTR and 3' UTR, and lacks exons in the 5' and 3' coding regions (compared to variant 1), resulting in the use of a downstream translation initiation codon. The encoded protein (isoform 2) is shorter at both the N- and C-termini, compared to isoform 1.
