27129268 mutations in SLC24A4 and SLC24A5 are responsible for the phenotypic defects observed in human amylogenesis imperfecta and non-syndromic oculocutaneous albinism patients.
26491832 a novel homozygous mutation in SLC24A5 in two patients from French Guiana strengthens the importance of screening this gene in oculocutaneous albinism patients.
25801600 Polymorphisms of SLC24A5 were found to be associated with skin, hair, and eye color in a phenotypically diverse Brazilian population, considered useful in forensic science for crime investigation and facial reconstruction in unknown bodies.
25370040 the SLC24A5 gene locus known to be associated with skin pigmentation was in the top selection signals in the Wolaita, and the alleles of single-nucleotide polymorphisms rs1426654 and rs1834640 (SLC24A5) associated with light skin pigmentation
24244186 Sequencing 11.74 kb of SLC24A5 in 95 individuals worldwide reveals that the rs1426654-A alleles in South Asian and West Eurasian populations are monophyletic and occur on the background of a common haplotype that is characterized by low genetic diversity
24048645 All chromosomes carrying the A111T allele of SLC24A5 gene share a single 78-kb haplotype indicating that all instances of this mutation in human populations share a common origin.
23985994 We observed a heterogeneous phenotype among seven oculocutaneous albinism patients with SLC24A5 mutations.
23364476 SLC24A5 is a previously unreported nonsyndromic oculocutaneous albinism candidate gene.
23224873 NCKX5, a natural regulator of human skin colour variation, regulates the expression of key pigment genes MC1R and alpha-MSH and alters cholesterol homeostasis in normal human melanocytes.

18650849 higher tyrosinase protein abundance was not observed for any NCKX5-111 allele variation
18637132 Greek subjects showed a prevalence of the Thr(111) allele variant of the SLC24A5 gene, even among subjects with darker skin pigmentation or phototype.
18637132 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18166528 non-synonymous single nucleotide polymorphism in SLC24A5 alters a residue that is important for NCKX5 and NCKX2 activity
18166528 The NCKX5 protein, encoded by the SLC24A5 gene, is localized to the trans-Golgi network where it may influence melanosomal assembly. The SLC24A5 allele encoding threonine-111 confers reduced NCKX5 activity.
17999355 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16847698 The p.L374F allele in SLC45A2 is a more specific ancestry informative marker than the p.A111T allele in SLC24A5, as it clearly distinguishes Sri Lankans from Europeans.
16357253 the variant allele is associated with a substantial reduction in regional heterozygosity, and correlates with lighter skin pigmentation in admixed populations, suggesting a key role for the SLC24A5 gene in human pigmentation
