Solute carrier family 24, member 5

SLC24A5, NCKX5, gol-1
This gene is a member of the potassium-dependent sodium/calcium exchanger family and encodes an intracellular membrane protein with 2 large hydrophilic loops and 2 sets of multiple transmembrane-spanning segments. Sequence variation in this gene has been associated with differences in skin pigmentation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Prenatal genotyping of four common oculocutaneous albinism genes in 51 Chinese families.

Three missense PUAs (p.C112R, p.H363R and p.G379V of TYR) and one in-frame deletional PUA (p.S222del of SLC24A5) led to fetuses with OCA when co-inherited with other disease causative alleles.
Discovery of copy number variants by multiplex amplifiable probe hybridization (MAPH) in candidate pigmentation genes.
Alonso et al., Leioa, Spain. In Ann Hum Biol, 2014
SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This study assessed the existence of CNVs in every exon of candidate genes: TYR, TYRP1, DCT, MC1R and SLC24A5, using the Multiplex Amplifiable Probe Hybridization technique (MAPH).
Impact of Na+/Ca2+ Exchangers on Therapy Resistance of Ovary Carcinoma Cells.
Lang et al., In Cell Physiol Biochem, 2014
RESULTS: The transcript levels of NCX3, NCKX4, NCKX5, and NCKX6, slope and peak of x0394;[Ca2+]i as well as Ica were significantly higher in therapy resistant than in therapy sensitive ovary carcinoma cells.

Finally, we observed that SNPs located in the genes SLC24A5 and SLC45A2 are strongly associated with melanin levels in the sample.
Increasing the complexity: new genes and new types of albinism.
Li et al., Madrid, Spain. In Pigment Cell Melanoma Res, 2014
In addition, two new genes have been identified as causing OCA when mutated: SLC24A5 and C10orf11, and hence designated as OCA6 and OCA7, respectively.
Mutational analysis of oculocutaneous albinism: a compact review.
Purohit et al., Vellore, India. In Biomed Res Int, 2013
Recently, two new genes SLC24A5 and C10orf11 are identified that are responsible to cause OCA6 and OCA7, respectively.
Pleiotropic effects of coat colour-associated mutations in humans, mice and other mammals.
Ludwig et al., Berlin, Germany. In Semin Cell Dev Biol, 2013
Whereas similar disorders and similar-looking coat colour phenotypes sometimes have a different genetic background (e.g., deafness [EDN3/EDNRB, MITF, PAX and SNAI2] and visual diseases [OCA2, RAB38, SLC24A5, SLC45A2, TRPM1 and TYR]).
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.

Variation of a non-synonymous single-nucleotide polymorphism (nsSNP; rs1426654) in the gene (SLC24A5) encoding the NCKX5 protein is associated with differences in constitutive skin colour in South Asians.

Genome-wide detection and characterization of positive selection in human populations.
Stewart et al., Cambridge, United States. In Nature, 2007
