The diastrophic dysplasia sulfate transporter is a transmembrane glycoprotein implicated in the pathogenesis of several human chondrodysplasias. It apparently is critical in cartilage for sulfation of proteoglycans and matrix organization. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SLC26A2 Gene
SLC26A2 (Solute Carrier Family 26 Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC26A2 include Achondrogenesis, Type Ib and Atelosteogenesis, Type Ii. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Glycosaminoglycan metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include secondary active sulfate transmembrane transporter activity and sulfate transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC26A1.
