Solute carrier family 36, member 2 also known as SLC36A2 is a protein which in humans is encoded by the SLC36A2 gene.[5]


SLC36A2 transports small amino acids (glycine, alanine, and proline) and also the D-enantiomers and select amino acid derivatives, such as gamma-aminobutyric acid.[5][6]

Clinical significance[edit]

Mutations in the SLC36A2 gene are associated with Iminoglycinuria.[7]
