SLC26A2 solute carrier family 26 (anion exchanger), member 2

Also known as: DTD; EDM4; DTDST; MST153; D5S1708; MSTP157


The diastrophic dysplasia sulfate transporter is a transmembrane glycoprotein implicated in the pathogenesis of several human chondrodysplasias. It apparently is critical in cartilage for sulfation of proteoglycans and matrix organization. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
