Electroneutral transporter of the plasma membrane mediating the cellular uptake of zinc and manganese, two divalent metal cations important for development, tissue homeostasis or immunity (PubMed:12504855, PubMed:22898811, PubMed:23403290, PubMed:29337306, PubMed:26637978, PubMed:29453449).

Functions as an energy-dependent symporter, transporting through the membranes an electroneutral complex composed of a divalent metal cation, a bicarbonate and a selenite anion or yet a metal cation and two bicarbonate anions (PubMed:27166256, PubMed:31699897).

May also transport iron, mercury and cobalt through membranes (PubMed:22898811).

Beside these endogenous cellular substrates, also imports cadmium a non-essential metal which is cytotoxic and carcinogenic (PubMed:27466201).

Through zinc import, indirectly regulates the metal-dependent transcription factor MTF1 and the expression of some metalloproteases involved in cartilage catabolism and also probably heart development (PubMed:29337306).

Also indirectly regulates the expression of proteins involved in cell morphology and cytoskeleton organization (PubMed:29927450).

Indirectly controls innate immune function and inflammatory response by regulating zinc cellular uptake which in turn modulates the expression of genes specific of these processes (PubMed:23403290, PubMed:28056086).

Protects, for instance, cells from injury and death at the onset of inflammation (PubMed:18390834).

By regulating zinc influx into monocytes also directly modulates their adhesion to endothelial cells and arteries (By similarity).

At the apical membrane of hepatocytes, reclaims manganese from the bile and regulates, through the systemic levels of the nutrient, the activity of manganese-dependent enzymes (PubMed:28481222).

Also participates in manganese reabsorption in the proximal tubule of the kidney (PubMed:26637978).

By mediating the extracellular uptake of manganese by cells of the blood-brain barrier, may also play a role in the transport of the micronutrient to the brain (PubMed:26637978, PubMed:31699897).

Through manganese cellular uptake also participates in mitochondrial proper function (PubMed:29453449).

Finally, also probably functions intracellularly, translocating zinc from lysosome to cytosol to indirectly enhance the expression of specific genes during TCR-mediated T cell activation (PubMed:19401385).

Congenital disorder of glycosylation 2N (CDG2N)3 Publications
The disease is caused by variants affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Disease descriptionA form of congenital disorder of glycosylation, a genetically heterogeneous group of autosomal recessive, multisystem disorders caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins. Congenital disorders of glycosylation result in a wide variety of clinical features, such as defects in the nervous system development, psychomotor retardation, dysmorphic features, hypotonia, coagulation disorders, and immunodeficiency. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions.

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:iE5C03F4576E11E2F
