FunctionZinc-efflux transporter which allocates the cytoplasmic zinc to the trans-Golgi network (TGN) as well as the vesicular compartment.
Tissue specificityExpressed in brain; especially in cerebellum, hippocampus, parahippocampal gyrus, superior and middle temporal gyrus. Also expressed in B cells, colon, eye, and lung. Lower expression was present in bone, brain, cervix, ear, heart, kidney, muscle, nerve, pancreas, prostate, skin, stomach, and testis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter (TC 2.A.4) family. SLC30A subfamily.
Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Found in vesicules.
