Literature associating SLC39A5 and myopia

SLC39A5 [ENSP00000266980]

Solute carrier family 39 (zinc transporter), member 5; May play a role in polarized cells by carrying out serosal-to-mucosal zinc transport. Plays a role in eye development. Could regulate the BMP/TGF-beta (bone morphogenetic protein/transforming growth factor-beta) signaling pathway and modulates extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins of the sclera. Seems to play a central role in controlling organismal zinc status (By similarity); Solute carriers
