Solute carrier family 25, member 29 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC25A29 gene.[1] The gene is also known as CACL and C14orf69.[1] SLC25A29 belongs to a protein family of solute carriers called the mitochondrial carriers.[1]

Model organisms[edit]

Model organisms have been used in the study of SLC25A29 function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Slc25a29tm1a(KOMP)Wtsi[6][7] was generated as part of the International Knockout Mouse Consortium program — a high-throughput mutagenesis project to generate and distribute animal models of disease to interested scientists — at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.[8][9][10]

Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen to determine the effects of deletion.[4][11] Twenty four tests were carried out on mutant mice, but no significant abnormalities were observed.[4]
