Description: Enables lead ion transmembrane transporter activity; transition metal ion binding activity; and transition metal ion transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to tumor necrosis factor; response to lead ion; and transition metal ion transport. Located in apical part of cell; late endosome membrane; and lysosomal membrane. Used to study Parkinsonism; hypochromic anemia; and pneumonia.
