Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Magnesium transporter NIPA4
  1. Ichthyin
  2. NIPA-like protein 4
  3. Non-imprinted in Prader-Willi/Angelman syndrome region protein 4
Gene Name NIPAL4
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Acts as a Mg(2+) transporter. Can also transport other divalent cations such as Ba(2+), Mn(2+), Sr(2+) and Co(2+) but to a much less extent than Mg(2+) (By similarity). May be a receptor for ligands (trioxilins A3 and B3) from the hepoxilin pathway.
