UCSF Pharmacogenetics of Membrane Transporters
Gene View
Common Name:NHE8
HGNC Symbol:SLC9A8
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 9, subfamily A (NHE8, cation proton antiporter 8), member 8
HGNC ID:20728
Chromosome:Chr.20(+): 48429250-48508779 GRCh37
OMIM Phenotype:None
Nucleotide RefSeq:NM_015266
Protein RefSeq:NP_056081
Evidence:Tissue Distribution Evidence: 1. Cloned from mouse kidney. Northern blot of mouse tissues revealed ubiquitous expression. Western blot demonstrated expression in apical membranes from rat renal cortex. ISH demonstrated NHE8 presence in both cortex and medulla in the proximal tubules, where it may contribute to apical membrane ion transport. Goyal, S; Vanden Heuvel, G; Aronson, PS.

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript

The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.) Click on a transcript or tissue to resort the data.
