Common Name:MCT2
HGNC Symbol:SLC16A7
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 16 (monocarboxylate transporter), member 7
HGNC ID:10928
Chromosome:Chr.12(+): 59989821-60183636 GRCh37
OMIM Phenotype:None
Nucleotide RefSeq:NM_004731
Protein RefSeq:NP_004722
Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: Pyruvate was shown to be a susbtrate of MCT2 as measured by uptake of the radiolabel in MCT2-expressing X. laevis oocytes (Lin RY, Vera JC, Chaganti RS, Golde DW. Human monocarboxylate transporter 2 (MCT2) is a high affinity pyruvate transporter. J Biol Chem 273(44):28959-65, 1998). This transport was inhibited by L-lactate, DL-(-hydroxybutyrate, (-hydroxybutyrate, and DL-(-hydroxybutyrate. . Tissue Distribution Evidence: Northern blot analysis of MCT2 mRNA in multiple human tissues showed transcripts of multiple length in a complex expression pattern. Three mRNAs of MCT2 from testis (ranging from 1.2- to 2.8-kilobases) yielded intense hybridization signals. Moderate to low levels of longer transcripts (3.6 and 11 kb) were observed in RNA samples derived from spleen, heart, kidney, pancreas, skeletal muscle, brain, and leukocyte (Lin RY, Vera JC, Chaganti RS, Golde DW. Human monocarboxylate transporter 2 (MCT2) is a high affinity pyruvate transporter. J Biol Chem 273(44):28959-65, 1998).

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript

The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.) Click on a transcript or tissue to resort the data.
