18695252 sialin possesses dual physiological functions and acts as a vesicular aspartate/glutamate transporter
18399798 The lysosomal localization of human sialin was not or only partially affected by pathogenic missense mutations; in contrast, all pathogenic mutations abolished transport of sialic acid.
17933575 study assessed the effect of missense mutations in the sialin gene (G328E and G409E) and found complete loss of measurable transport activity with both and impaired trafficking of the G409E protein
16170568 a SLC17A5 p.K136E mutation may have a role in a case of Italian severe Salla disease
15516337 there is a direct correlation between sialin function and the disease state of sialic acid storage disorders
15510212 Two missense mutations and one small, in-frame deletion in sialin are associated with ISSD abolished transport, the mutation causing Salla disease (R39C) slowed down, but did not stop the transport cycle.
15172005 Molecular studies showed that all four affected individuals were homozygous for the same novel 983G > A mutation in exon 8 of the SLC17A5 gene, replacing glycine with glutamic acid at position 328 of the sialin protein
15006695 In primary neuronal cultures sialin was not targeted into lysosomes but rather revealed a punctate staining along the neuronal processes and was also seen in the plasma membrane.
