Boric acid increases the expression levels of human anion exchanger genes SLC4A2 and SLC4A3

F. Akbas and Aydin, Z., Boric acid increases the expression levels of human anion exchanger genes SLC4A2 and SLC4A3, vol. 11, pp. 847-854, 2012.

Boron is an important micronutrient in plants and animals. The role of boron in living systems includes coordinated regulation of gene expression, growth and proliferation of higher plants and animals. There are several well-defined genes associated with boron transportation and tolerance in plants and these genes show close homology with human anion exchanger genes. Mutation of these genes also characterizes some genetic disorders.
