SLC30A8 encodes the human gene, Solute carrier family 30 (zinc transporter), member 8. It may also be known as: Zinc transporter 8; Solute carrier family 30 member 8; ZnT-8; ZNT8. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 369 and a mass of 40.8 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. SLC30A8 is a member of the Cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter (TC 2.A.4) family, SLC30A subfamily. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Frog, Chicken.
