Human Gene SLC30A7 (uc001dtn.1)
  Description: zinc transporter like 2
RefSeq Summary (NM_001144884): Zinc functions as a cofactor for numerous enzymes, nuclear factors, and hormones and as an intra- and intercellular signal ion. Members of the zinc transporter (ZNT)/SLC30 subfamily of the cation diffusion facilitator family, such as SLC30A7, permit cellular efflux of zinc (Seve et al., 2004 [PubMed 15154973]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008].

-  Comments and Description Text from UniProtKB
DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Zinc transporter 7; Short=ZnT-7; AltName: Full=Solute carrier family 30 member 7; AltName: Full=Znt-like transporter 2;
FUNCTION: Seems to facilitate zinc transport from the cytoplasm into the Golgi apparatus. Partly regulates cellular zinc homeostasis. Required with ZNT5 for the activation of zinc- requiring enzymes, alkaline phosphatases (ALPs). Transports zinc into the lumens of the Golgi apparatus and the vesicular compartments where ALPs locate, thus, converting apoALPs to holoALPs. Required with ZNT5 and ZNT6 for the activation of TNAP (By similarity).
SUBUNIT: Homooligomer.
INTERACTION: P25942:CD40; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-1043569, EBI-525714;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
INDUCTION: Increased intracellular zinc level, resulting from extracellular zinc supplementation, do not induce any up- or down- regulation of gene expression. Up-regulated by zinc depletion.
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter (TC 2.A.4) family. SLC30A subfamily.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q8NEW0
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.
