Solute carrier family 10 member 2 (IPR030207)

Short name: SLC10A2

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Solute carrier family 10 member 2 (SLC10A2) is also known as ileal sodium/bile acid cotransporter (ASBT) as it plays a critical role in the sodium-dependent reabsorption of bile acids from the lumen of the small intestine [PMID: 7592981, PMID: 9109432]. It indirectly contributes to cholesterol homoeostasis [PMID: 16687134, PMID: 24498857].
