MFSD8 (human)

MFSD8 May be a carrier that transport small solutes by using chemiosmotic ion gradients (Potential). Defects in MFSD8 are the cause of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 7 (CLN7). A form of late infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis. CNL are a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by the intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent lipopigment storage material in different patterns ultrastructurally. The patterns most often observed CLN7 are mixed combinations of granular, curvilinear, fingerprint, and rectilinear profiles. The clinical course includes progressive dementia, seizures, and progressive visual failure. Belongs to the major facilitator superfamily. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
