Gene : SLC45A2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? solute carrier family 45 member 2 Cytological Location  5p13.2
Brief Description  solute carrier family 45 member 2
Description  This gene encodes a transporter protein that mediates melanin synthesis. The protein is expressed in a high percentage of melanoma cell lines. Mutations in this gene are a cause of oculocutaneous albinism type 4, and polymorphisms in this gene are associated with variations in skin and hair color. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
