Summaries for SLC16A2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC16A2 Gene

  • This gene encodes an integral membrane protein that functions as a transporter of thyroid hormone. The encoded protein facilitates the cellular importation of thyroxine (T4), triiodothyronine (T3), reverse triiodothyronine (rT3) and diidothyronine (T2). This gene is expressed in many tissues and likely plays an important role in the development of the central nervous system. Loss of function mutations in this gene are associated with psychomotor retardation in males while females exhibit no neurological defects and more moderate thyroid-deficient phenotypes. This gene is subject to X-chromosome inactivation. Mutations in this gene are the cause of Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for SLC16A2 Gene

MOT8_HUMAN
  • Monocarboxylate transporter 8 deficiency (MCT8 deficiency) [MIM:300523]: Consists of a severe form of X-linked psychomotor retardation combined with abnormal thyroid hormone (TH) levels. Thyroid hormone deficiency can be caused by defects of hormone synthesis and action, but it has also been linked to a defect in cellular hormone transport. Affected patients are males with abnormal relative concentrations of three circulating iodothyronines, as well as severe neurological abnormalities, including global developmental delay, central hypotonia, spastic quadriplegia, dystonic movements, rotary nystagmus, and impaired gaze and hearing. Heterozygous females had a milder thyroid phenotype and no neurological defects. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:14661163, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15488219, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15889350, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18636565, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23550058, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25527620, ECO:0000269 PubMed:26426690, ECO:0000269 Ref.8}.
