HMDB Protein ID HMDBP11935
Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Zinc transporter ZIP2
  1. 6A1
  2. Eti-1
  3. Solute carrier family 39 member 2
  4. Zrt- and Irt-like protein 2
  5. ZIP-2
  6. hZIP2
Gene Name SLC39A2
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Mediates zinc uptake. Zinc uptake may be mediated by a Zn(2+)-HCO(3)(-) symport mechanism and can function in the presence of albumin. May also transport other divalent cations. May be important in contact inhibition of normal epithelial cells and loss of its expression may play a role in tumorigenesis.
