SLCO2A1

A gene on chromosome 3q21 that encodes a transporter which mediates the release, transepithelial transport, and clearance of newly synthesised prostaglandins (PGD2, PGE1, PGE2 and PGF2A) from the circulation.

Molecular pathology
Defects in SLCO2A1 cause hypertrophic osteoarthropathy, primary, autosomal recessive type 2.
