High impact information on Slc22a2

  • Uptake of [(3)H]1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium ([(3)H]MPP(+)) by Xenopus laevis oocytes injected with mOCT1 (Slc22a1) or mOCT2 (Slc22a2) cRNA was attenuated by an increase of extracellular K(+) concentration and under acidic extracellular conditions [1].
  • The results eliminate both Orct2 and Orct3 as candidates and further reduce the critical region containing the t(w73) mutant from 500 kb to 200 kb [2].
  • The genomic locus of the Orct2 gene appears similar in wild-type and t(w73) chromosomes [2].
  • Cloning of the mouse organic cation transporter 2 gene, Slc22a2, from an enhancer-trap transgene integration locus [3].
