Gene: Slc11a2 (solute carrier family 11 member 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc11a2
Name: solute carrier family 11 member 2
Description: Exhibits transition metal ion binding activity and transmembrane transporter activity; involved in several processes, including cation transport, cellular response to hypoxia, and cellular response to iron ion; localizes to the apical part of cell, cytoplasm, and integral component of membrane; used to study hypochromic anemia and pneumonia; biomarker of brain ischemia, duodenal ulcer, and iron deficiency anemia; orthologous to human SLC11A2 (solute carrier family 11 member 2); PARTICIPATES IN hypoxia inducible factor pathway; iron uptake pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-10-[(DIMETHYLAMINO)METHYL]-4-ETHYL-4,9-DIHYDROXY-1H-PYRANO[3',4':6,7]INOLIZINO[1,2-B]-QUINOLINE-3,14(4H,12H)-DIONE; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3H-1,2-dithiole-3-thione.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: divalent cation transporter 1; divalent metal transporter 1; DMT-1; DMT1; natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 2; NRAMP 2; Nramp2; solute carrier family 11 (proton-coupled divalent metal ion transporter), member 2; solute carrier family 11 (proton-coupled divalent metal ion transporters), member 2; Solute carrier family 11 member 2 (natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 2)
