solute carrier organic anion transporter family member 1A2

ENTREZID: 6579 | Type: NA | Map: 12p12.1

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a sodium-independent transporter which mediates cellular uptake of organic ions in the liver. Its substrates include bile acids, bromosulphophthalein, and some steroidal compounds. The protein is a member of the SLC21A family of solute carriers. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
