Solute carrier family 20

Pit2, Ram-1, GLVR-2
This gene encodes a member of the inorganic phosphate transporter family. The encoded protein is a type 3 sodium-dependent phosphate symporter that plays an important role in phosphate homeostasis by mediating cellular phosphate uptake. The encoded protein also confers susceptibility to viral infection as a gamma-retroviral receptor. Mutations in this gene may play a role in familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012] (from NCBI)

Pedersen et al., Århus, Denmark. In Neurogenetics, Jan 2016

Oliveira et al., Recife, Brazil. In Hum Mutat, May 2015
SLC20A2 encodes an inorganic phosphate transporter, PiT-2, widely expressed in various tissues, including brain, and is part of a major family of solute carrier membrane transporters.
Primary familial brain calcification: update on molecular genetics.
Federico et al., Siena, Italy. In Neurol Sci, May 2015
SLC20A2 gene codes for the 'sodium-dependent phosphate transporter 2' (PiT-2), a cell membrane transporters of inorganic phosphate, involved in Pi uptake by cells and maintenance of Pi body levels.
First report of a de novo mutation at SLC20A2 in a patient with brain calcification.
Oliveira et al., Recife, Brazil. In J Mol Neurosci, 2014
Mutations in the SLC20A2 gene account for ~40% of inherited cases, and this gene encodes an inorganic phosphate transporter (PiT-2), a transmembrane protein associated with Pi homeostasis.
Deregulated Renal Calcium and Phosphate Transport during Experimental Kidney Failure.
NIGRAM Consortium et al., Nijmegen, Netherlands. In Plos One, 2014
Furthermore, kidney failure was characterized by enhanced renal expression of the transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 5 (TRPV5), calbindin-D28k, and sodium-dependent Pi transporter type 2b (NaPi2b), whereas the renal expression of sodium-dependent Pi transporter type 2a (NaPi2a) and type 3 (PIT2) were reduced.
The genetics of primary familial brain calcifications.
Klein et al., Lübeck, Germany. In Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep, 2014
In the past 2 years, 3 genes have been identified to cause PFBC, (ie, SLC20A2, PDGFRB, and PDGFB).
Genetic diseases of renal phosphate handling.
Hernando et al., Zürich, Switzerland. In Nephrol Dial Transplant, 2014
At least three transport proteins are responsible for renal phosphate reabsorption: NAPI-IIa (SLC34A1), NAPI-IIc (SLC34A3) and PIT-2 (SLC20A2).
Comparing the expression patterns of placental magnesium/phosphorus-transporting channels between healthy and preeclamptic pregnancies.
Jeung et al., Ch'ŏngju, South Korea. In Mol Reprod Dev, 2014
The expression of MPC genes (TRPM6, TRPM7, PiT-1, and PiT-2) was down-regulated in preeclamptic placenta tissues during preterm labor, and generally remained lower at term labor-although TRPM7 expression in the central placenta or PiT-2 expression in whole placenta was unchanged or up-regulated.
Active removal of inorganic phosphate from cerebrospinal fluid by the choroid plexus.
Renfro et al., Faro, Portugal. In Am J Physiol Renal Physiol, 2014
RT-PCR revealed both P(i) transporter (PiT)1 and PiT2 (SLC20 family) gene expression, but no Na(+)-P(i) cotransporter II (SLC34 family) expression, in the shark CP.

Hernando et al., Zürich, Switzerland. In Am J Physiol Renal Physiol, 2014
The proximal renal epithelia express three different Na-dependent inorganic phosphate (Pi) cotransporters: NaPi-IIa/SLC34A1, NaPi-IIc/SLC34A3, and PiT2/SLC20A2.
Highly efficient tumor transduction and antitumor efficacy in experimental human malignant mesothelioma using replicating gibbon ape leukemia virus.
Kasahara et al., Nishinomiya, Japan. In Cancer Gene Ther, 2013
Quantitative reverse transcription PCR demonstrated that ACC-MESO-1 cells express higher PiT-1 (GALV receptor) and lower PiT-2 (AMLV receptor) compared with normal mesothelial cells and other mesothelioma cells, presumably accounting for the distinctive finding that GALV-RRV replicates much more robustly than AMLV-RRV in these cells.

An update on primary familial brain calcification.
Oliveira et al., Santiago de Compostela, Spain. In Int Rev Neurobiol, 2012
Recently, mutations in the SLC20A2 gene coding for the inorganic phosphate transporter PiT2 were linked to PFBC, thereby implicating impaired phosphate transport as an underlying disease mechanism.

reduced intestinal Pi absorption in VDR (-/-) mice does not seem to be the only factor that causes hypophosphatemia; reduced Npt2a, Npt2c, or PiT-2 protein levels during development might also cause hypophosphatemia and rickets in VDR (-/-) mice.
