magnesium transporter 1

ENTREZID: 84061 | Type: NA | Map: Xq21.1

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a ubiquitously expressed magnesium cation transporter protein that localizes to the cell membrane. This protein also associates with N-oligosaccharyl transferase and therefore may have a role in N-glycosylation. Mutations in this gene cause a form of X-linked intellectual disability (XLID). This gene may have multiple in-frame translation initiation sites, one of which would encode a shorter protein with an N-terminus containing a signal peptide at amino acids 1-29.
