Glucose-6-phosphate exchanger SLC37A4

The SLC37A4 gene encodes a transport protein of glucose-6-phosphate from the cytosol into the endoplasmatic reticulum. It plays an important role in intracellular glycose and calcium homeostasis. Mutations cause autosomal recessive glycogen storage disease type 1B and 1C.
