HMDB Protein ID HMDBP12042
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Zinc transporter 8
  1. ZnT-8
  2. Solute carrier family 30 member 8
Gene Name SLC30A8
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Facilitates the accumulation of zinc from the cytoplasm into intracellular vesicles, being a zinc-efflux transporter. May be a major component for providing zinc to insulin maturation and/or storage processes in insulin-secreting pancreatic beta-cells.
