SLC2A9 encodes the human gene, Solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 9. It may also be known as: Solute carrier family 2, facilitated glucose transporter member 9; Glucose transporter type 9; GLUT-9; urate voltage-driven efflux transporter 1; GLUTX; UAQTL2; URATv1. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 540 and a mass of 58.7 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. SLC2A9 is a member of the Major facilitator superfamily, Sugar transporter (TC 2.A.1.1) family, Glucose transporter subfamily. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Frog, Chicken.
