TRPM6


Also found in: Dictionary, Wikipedia.

TRPM6

A gene on chromosome 9q21.13 that encodes an essential ion channel and serine/threonine-protein kinase, which is required for magnesium homeostasis—both for epithelial magnesium transport and in the active magnesium absorption in the GI tract and re-absorption in the kidney.
