Gene: Mpc2 (mitochondrial pyruvate carrier 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mpc2
Name: mitochondrial pyruvate carrier 2
Description: Predicted to have pyruvate transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in mitochondrial acetyl-CoA biosynthetic process from pyruvate; mitochondrial pyruvate transmembrane transport; and positive regulation of insulin secretion involved in cellular response to glucose stimulus. Predicted to localize to integral component of mitochondrial inner membrane. Orthologous to human MPC2 (mitochondrial pyruvate carrier 2); INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acetamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: brain protein 44; Brp44; LOC100359982; LOC289182; protein 0-44; RGD1563422; similar to Brain protein 44; SLC54A2; solute carrier family 54 member 2
