Cloning and characterization of a putative human glycerol 3-phosphate permease gene (SLC37A1 or G3PP) on 21q22.3: mutation analysis in two candidate phenotypes, DFNB10 and a glycerol kinase deficiency.


Using multiple exons trapped from human chromosome 21 (HC21)-specific cosmids with homology to a putative Arabidopsis thaliana glycerol 3-phosphate permease, we have determined the full-length cDNA sequence of a novel HC21 gene encoding a putative sugar-phosphate transporter (HGMW-approved symbol SLC37A1, aka G3PP). The predicted protein has 12 putative… (More)
