Protein name: N/D Aliases: N/D Substrates: glycine ? Transport type: N/D Tissue and cellular expression: erythroid cells Subcellular expression: N/D Disease: sideroblastic anemia Locus: 3p22.1 Sequence ID: NP_060345.2, NM_017875.2 Gene ID: 54977 Splice variants: N/D

S2538_HUMAN (UniProt)

Gene names: SLC25A38
Protein names and data: S2538_HUMAN, Full=Solute carrier family 25 member 38; Length: 304 a.a., Mass: 33566 Da,
fasta formatted sequence

Function: Mitochondrial carrier required during erythropoiesis. Probably involved in the biosynthesis of heme, possibly by facilitating 5-aminolevulinate (ALA) production. May act by importing glycine into mitochondria or by exchanging glycine for ALA across the mitochondrial inner membrane
Cellular location: Mitochondrion inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein (By similarity)
Tissue specificity: Preferentially expressed in erythroid cells
