Gene: SLC28A2 (solute carrier family 28 member 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC28A2
Name: solute carrier family 28 member 2
RGD ID: 732572
Description: Exhibits neurotransmitter transmembrane transporter activity and nucleoside transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including nucleoside transport; purine nucleobase transmembrane transport; and pyrimidine-containing compound transmembrane transport. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including brush border membrane; coated vesicle; and vesicle membrane; PARTICIPATES IN azathioprine pharmacodynamics pathway; mercaptopurine pharmacodynamics pathway; mercaptopurine pharmacokinetics pathway; INTERACTS WITH adenosine; aflatoxin B1; arsane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
