Disease relevance of Slc22a7


High impact information on Slc22a7

  • Nevertheless, the overall homology of NKT to two recently cloned organic ion transport proteins (NLT and OCT-1) is significantly greater; together these three gene products may represent a new subgroup of transporters [2].
  • In this study, two immortalized GnRH-expressing cell lines (Gn11 and NLT) were characterized [1].
  • Human, rat and mouse OAT2 transported selected anti-inflammatory and antiviral drugs, methotrexate, ochratoxin A, and, with high affinities, prostaglandins E(2) and F(2alpha) [3].
  • The gene coding for mOAT2, Slc22a7, is found on chromosome 17C [4].
  • In addition, we found that there exists a sex- and species-related differential gene expression of the OAT2 isoform [4].

Biological context of Slc22a7


Anatomical context of Slc22a7

  • Thus, when the transition from myoblasts to myotubes was slow, and the absolute level of fusion was reduced, as in the NLT cell line, the level of m-calpain was stable [5].
