Protein Information
Name SLC30A8
Synonyms ZNT8
Function Facilitates the accumulation of zinc from the cytoplasm into intracellular vesicles, being a zinc-efflux transporter. May be a major component for providing zinc to insulin maturation and/or storage processes in insulin-secreting pancreatic beta- cells.
Cellular Location Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Associated with insulin and glucagon secretory granules.
Tissue Location In the endocrine pancreas, expressed in insulin-producing beta cells. Expressed at relatively high levels in subcutaneous fat tissue from lean persons; much lower levels in visceral fat, whether from lean or obese individuals, and in subcutaneous fat tissue from obese individuals. Expressed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, including T-cells and B-cells, with great variation among individuals ranging from negative to strongly positive.

SLC30A8 Antibody: SLC30A8 is a zinc efflux transporter involved in the accumulation of zinc in intracellular vesicles and is expressed at a high level in the pancreas, particularly in islets of Langerhans, and co-localizes with insulin in the secretory pathway granules of the insulin-secreting INS-1 cells (1). Allelic variants of SLC30A8 have been identified as major genetic risk factors for the development of Type 2 diabetes (2), but no genetic association has been found with Type 1 diabetes (3). SLC30A8 expression in -cells was found to be influenced by cytokine expression, particularly IFN-gamma and IL-1beta (4).
