External Ids for SLC25A2 Gene
This intronless gene encodes a protein that localizes to the mitochondrial inner membrane and likely functions as a transporter of small molecules such as ornithine. This gene is located between the protocadherin beta and gamma gene clusters on chromosome 5. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
GeneCards Summary for SLC25A2 Gene
SLC25A2 (Solute Carrier Family 25 (Mitochondrial Carrier; Ornithine Transporter) Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC25A2 include urea cycle disorder. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include L-ornithine transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC25A15.
