Common Name:CTR2
HGNC Symbol:SLC31A2
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 31 (copper transporter), member 2
HGNC ID:11017
Chromosome:Chr.9(+): 115913238-115926422 GRCh37
OMIM Phenotype:None
Nucleotide RefSeq:NM_001860
Protein RefSeq:NP_001851
Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: It has not been conclusively shown that hCTR2 transports copper. It was identified by homology to hCTR1 and a yeast copper transporter (yCTR2). It has been speculated that hCTR2 is likely to be an intracellular copper transporter because the yeast ortholog was localized to the vacuole.

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.
