Human Gene SLC35A3 (uc001dsp.1)
  Description: solute carrier family 35 member 3A
RefSeq Summary (NM_012243): This gene encodes a UDP-N-acetylglucosamine transporter found in the golgi apparatus membrane. In cattle, a missense mutation in this gene causes complex vertebral malformation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012].

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q9Y2D2
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
