Sodium/hydrogen exchanger 8 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC9A8 gene.[1][2]


Model organisms

Model organisms have been used in the study of SLC9A8 function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Slc9a8tm1a(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 — at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.[8][9][10]

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