Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- Solute carrier family 30 member 6,
- solute carrier family 30 (zinc transporter), member 6,
- Zinc transporter 6,
SLC30A6 is a zinc-efflux transporter which has been shown by similarity to be involved in distributing the cytoplasmic zinc to the trans-Golgi network (TGN) as well as the vesicular compartment. SLC30A6, a member of the zinc transporter (ZNT)/SLC30 subfamily of the cation diffusion facilitator family, permits cellular efflux of zinc.

No additional ovarian data available.
SLC30A6 was one of 50 tumor vasculature-associated genes with transmembrane or secreted protein products identified through expression profiling of ovarian cancer vascular cells. These 50 tumor vascular markers (TVMs) also had low or no expression in normal tissues. SLC30A6 was not in the group of 13 selected for further validation.
