Solute carrier family 41, member 3 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC41A3 gene.[1]

Model organisms

Model organisms have been used in the study of SLC41A3 function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Slc41a3tm1a(KOMP)Wtsi[6][7] was generated as part of the International Knockout Mouse Consortium program — a high-throughput mutagenesis project to generate and distribute animal models of disease to interested scientists.[8][9][10]

Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen to determine the effects of deletion.[4][11] Twenty six tests were carried out on mutant mice and one significant abnormality was observed: homozygous mutants displayed abnormal locomotor coordination.[4]
