SLC9A7


solute carrier family 9 member A7


ENTREZID: 84679 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: Xp11.3

OMIM: 605616 | 242600 | 138500


Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a sodium and potassium/ proton antiporter that is a member of the solute carrier family 9 protein family. The encoded protein is primarily localized to the trans-Golgi network and is involved in maintaining pH homeostasis in organelles along the secretory and endocytic pathways. This protein may enhance cell growth of certain breast tumors. This gene is part of a gene cluster on chromosome Xp11.23. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 12. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]
