H(+)/Cl(-) exchange transporter 5 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CLCN5 gene.[1][2] This gene encodes a member of the ClC family of chloride ion channels and ion transporters. Mutations in this gene have been found in Dent's Disease and renal tubular disorders complicated by nephrolithiasis.[3] Although a member of a family of chloride channels, the CLCN5 protein allows movement of protons in the opposite direction of Cl(-), thus functioning as an antiporter.
