Gene: Slc2a2 (solute carrier family 2 member 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc2a2
Name: solute carrier family 2 member 2
CRRD ID: 3705
Description: Exhibits D-glucose transmembrane transporter activity; dehydroascorbic acid transmembrane transporter activity; and insulin receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including carbohydrate utilization; dehydroascorbic acid transport; and hexose transmembrane transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; basolateral plasma membrane; and brush border membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Fanconi syndrome; glycogen storage disease; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human SLC2A2 (solute carrier family 2 member 2); PARTICIPATES IN facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; Fanconi syndrome pathway; forkhead class A signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: glucose transporter type 2, liver; GLUT-2; Glut2; GTT2; solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 2; Solute carrier family 2 A2 (gkucose transporter type 2); Solute carrier family 2 A2 (gkucose transporter, type 2); solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 2
