Gene: SLC23A2 (solute carrier family 23 member 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC23A2
Name: solute carrier family 23 member 2
Description: Exhibits sodium-dependent L-ascorbate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in L-ascorbic acid transmembrane transport and transepithelial L-ascorbic acid transport. Localizes to apical plasma membrane and basolateral plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
