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 Transport of vitamins, nucleosides, and related molecules. 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.
