The SLC26A2 protein is a member of the solute carrier family. In humans, this transporter is encoded by the SLC26A2 gene.[3]

Function[edit]

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 extracellular matrix organization.[4]

Clinical significance[edit]

Deficiencies are associated with many forms of osteochondrodysplasia.[5] These include:
