Gene: SLC22A5 (solute carrier family 22 member 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC22A5
Name: solute carrier family 22 member 5
Description: Exhibits PDZ domain binding activity and carnitine transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in organic cation transport; positive regulation of intestinal epithelial structure maintenance; and quorum sensing involved in interaction with host. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane and brush border membrane. Implicated in Crohn's disease; cardiomyopathy; inherited metabolic disorder; and systemic primary carnitine deficiency disease. Biomarker of myelodysplastic syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CDSP; FLJ46769; high-affinity sodium dependent carnitine cotransporter; high-affinity sodium-dependent carnitine cotransporter; OCTN2; OCTN2VT; organic cation transporter 2; organic cation transporter 5; organic cation/carnitine transporter 2; solute carrier family 22 (organic cation transporter), member 5; solute carrier family 22 (organic cation/carnitine transporter), member 5; solute carrier family 22, member 5
