Gene: Slc23a2 (solute carrier family 23 member 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc23a2
Name: solute carrier family 23 member 2
RGD ID: 619876
Description: Exhibits sodium-dependent L-ascorbate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including L-ascorbic acid transmembrane transport; cellular response to ethanol; and positive regulation of dendrite extension. Localizes to basal plasma membrane; cytoplasm; and integral component of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human SLC23A2 (solute carrier family 23 member 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-amino-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranose; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: na(+)/L-ascorbic acid transporter 2; sodium-coupled ascorbic acid transporter 2; sodium-dependent vitamin C transporter 2; solute carrier family 23 (ascorbic acid transporter), member 2; solute carrier family 23 (nucleobase transporters), member 2; SVCT2
