Abstract

Although manganese (Mn) is required for normal cellular function, overexposure to this metal may cause an extrapyramidal syndrome resembling Parkinson's disease (PD). Notably, high whole-blood Mn levels have been reported in patients with idiopathic PD. Because Mn is both essential at low dose and toxic at higher dose; its transport and homeostasis are tightly regulated. Previously, the only protein known to be operant in cellular Mn export was the iron-regulating transporter, ferroportin (Fpn). The causal role for Mn in PD has yet to be fully understood, but evidence of a familial predisposition to PD associated with Mn toxicity is mounting. A recently discovered mutation in SLC30A10 identified its gene product as putatively involved in Mn efflux. Patients with the SLC30A10 mutation display Parkinsonian-like gate disturbances and hypermanganesemia. This review will address Mn transport proteins, the newly discovered SLC30A10 mutations and their implications to Parkinsonism and Mn regulation.
