Functions as a zinc transporter. May be a transporter of zinc into beta cells in order to form insulin crystals. Partly regulates cellular zinc homeostasis. Required with ZNT7 for the activation of zinc-requiring enzymes, alkaline phosphatases (ALPs). Transports zinc into the lumens of the Golgi apparatus and vesicular compartments where ALPs locate, thus, converting apoALPs to holoALPs. Required with ZNT6 and ZNT7 for the activation of TNAP. This gene encodes a member of the SLC30A/ZnT family of zinc transporter proteins. ZnT proteins mediate both cellular zinc efflux and zinc sequestration into membrane-bound organelles. The encoded protein plays a role in the early secretory pathway as a heterodimer with zinc transporter 6, and may also regulate zinc sequestration into secretory granules of pancreatic beta cells. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene, and a pseudogene of this gene is located on the long arm of chromosom ...more
