SLC25A5A gene on chromosome Xq24 that encodes a mitochondrial solute carrier protein, which functions as a gated pore that translocates ADP from the mitochondrial matrix into the cytoplasm. SLC25A5 forms a
homodimer embedded in the inner mitochondria membrane. Suppressed SLC25A5 expression induces apoptosis and inhibits tumour growth.
