Gene: Slc2a8 (solute carrier family 2 member 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc2a8
Name: solute carrier family 2 member 8
RGD ID: 620611
Description: Exhibits dehydroascorbic acid transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in dehydroascorbic acid transport and male meiosis I. Localizes to synaptic vesicle. Orthologous to human SLC2A8 (solute carrier family 2 member 8); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-deoxy-D-glucose; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: glucose transporter type 8; glucose transporter type X1; GLUT-8; Glut8; solute carrier family 2, (facilitated glucose transporter) member 8; solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 8
