Comments [?]

Function Involved in zinc efflux across the cytoplasmic membrane, thus reducing zinc accumulation in the cytoplasm and rendering bacteria more resistant to zinc. It may contribute to zinc homeostasis at low concentrations of zinc.
case not defined <Property:Membrane> or <Property:Membrane=1>
Subcellular location Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
else case <Property:Membrane=2>
Subcellular location Cell inner membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the cation diffusion facilitator (CDF) transporter (TC 2.A.4) family. SLC30A subfamily.
