CTR2 Products


SLC31A2, also known as CTR2, is a SLC31A transporter family member. Although the function of CTR2 is still poorly understood in mammalian cells, it is expected to be involved in low-affinity copper uptake. It is believed to be confined to lysosomes which stimulate copper delivery to the the cytosol of human cells at high concentrations.
