Solute carrier family 25 member 38 (IPR030847)

Short name: SLC25A38

Family relationships


Solute carrier family 25 member 38 (SLC25A38) belongs to the SLC25 family, whose members are inner mitochondrial membrane transporters promoting the exchange of one metabolite for another across the inner mitochondrial membrane. SLC25A38 is predicted to be an amino acid carrier. It plays an important role in the biosynthesis of heme in eukaryotes [PMID: 19412178]. Mutations in the SLC25A38 gene cause nonsyndromic autosomal recessive congenital sideroblastic anemia [PMID: 19412178, PMID: 21393332].
