solute carrier family 29 (nucleoside transporters), member 29
Solute carrier family 29 member 2
Mediates equilibrative transport of purine, pyrimidine nucleosides and the purine base hypoxanthine. Very less sensitive than SLC29A1 to inhibition by nitrobenzylthioinosine (NBMPR), dipyridamole, dilazep and draflazine.
Expressed in skeletal muscle, liver, lung, placenta, brain, heart, kidney and ovarian tissues.
Belongs to the SLC29A/ENT transporter (TC 2.A.57) family.
Basolateral cell membrane. Nucleus membrane. Localized at the basolateral cell membrane in polarized MDCK cells.
