FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] Zinc functions as a cofactor for numerous enzymes, nuclear factors, and hormones and as an intra- and intercellular signal ion. Members of the zinc transporter (ZNT)/SLC30 subfamily of the cation diffusion facilitator family, such as SLC30A7, permit cellular efflux of zinc (Seve et al., 2004 [PubMed 15154973]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a gene trapped allele exhibit a low body zinc status, reduced food intake and poor body weight gain, and are lean due to a significant reduction in body fat accumulation; however, no signs of hair growth abnormalities or dermatitis are observed.
