Recombinant proteins for solute carrier family 22 member 17 are available from various sources. In humans, this protein has a Uniprot ID of Q8WUG5 and has an annotated function: 'Cell surface receptor for LCN2 (24p3) that plays a key role in iron homeostasis and transport.' This protein is 538 amino acids in length and 57.7 kilodaltons in mass. It has been designated a subcellular localization as: cell membrane. This protein is encoded by the gene SLC22A17. Other names also exist, such as: solute carrier family 22 member 17, 24p3 receptor, NGAL receptor, brain-type organic cation transporter, lipocalin-2 receptor, neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin receptor, potent brain type organic ion transporter, solute carrier family 22 (organic cation transporter), member 17. As many as 3 isoforms have been named. This protein is conserved in other species, including: mouse, rat.
