Entrez Gene Summary for SLC15A2 Gene

  • The mammalian kidney expresses a proton-coupled peptide transporter that is responsible for the absorption of small peptides, as well as beta-lactam antibiotics and other peptide-like drugs, from the tubular filtrate. This transporter, SLC15A2, belongs to the same gene family as SLC15A1 (MIM 600544), the proton-coupled peptide transporter found in the small intestine (Liu et al, 1995 [PubMed 7756356]).[supplied by OMIM, Feb 2011]

GeneCards Summary for SLC15A2 Gene

SLC15A2 (Solute Carrier Family 15 (Oligopeptide Transporter), Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include peptide:proton symporter activity and high-affinity oligopeptide transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC15A3.
