Summaries for SLCO1A2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLCO1A2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a sodium-independent transporter which mediates cellular uptake of organic ions in the liver. Its substrates include bile acids, bromosulphophthalein, and some steroidal compounds. The protein is a member of the SLC21A family of solute carriers. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SLCO1A2 Gene

SLCO1A2 (Solute Carrier Organic Anion Transporter Family, Member 1A2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLCO1A2 include aneurysmal bone cysts and intrahepatic cholestasis.
