solute carrier family 39 member 8
The SLC39A8 gene codes for a protein important in the function of zinc and manganese transporters. Defects in this gene have been linked to mitochondrial disorders, manganese deficiency, and congenital disorders of glycosylation (Riley, et al., 2017).
A change in this gene was identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if this change is causing symptoms in this participant.
*Note: only one variant identified.
