GeneCards Summary for SLC28A2 Gene
SLC28A2 (Solute Carrier Family 28 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 Thiopurine Pathway, Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleoside binding and purine nucleoside transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC28A1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC28A2 Gene
Sodium-dependent and purine-selective transporter. Exhibits the transport characteristics of the nucleoside transport system cif or N1 subtype (N1/cif) (selective for purine nucleosides and uridine). Plays a critical role in specific uptake and salvage of purine nucleosides in kidney and other tissues.
