gene: nhx-6 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Legacy GBrowse] [Search on AGR]
Predicted to enable potassium:proton antiporter activity and sodium:proton antiporter activity. Predicted to be involved in potassium ion transmembrane transport; regulation of intracellular pH; and sodium ion import across plasma membrane. Predicted to be located in plasma membrane. Expressed in intestine. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia 19; congenital secretory sodium diarrhea 8; and end stage renal disease. Is an ortholog of human SLC9A3 (solute carrier family 9 member A3) and SLC9A5 (solute carrier family 9 member A5).
