SLC30A9 Acts as a zinc transporter involved in intracellular zinc homeostasis. Functions as a secondary coactivator for nuclear receptors by cooperating with p160 coactivators subtypes. Plays a role in transcriptional activation of Wnt-responsive genes. Belongs to the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter (TC 2.A.4) family. SLC30A subfamily. Ubiquitously expressed in fetal and adult tissues and cancer cell lines. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
