Solute carrier family 14

UTA, UT2, Slc14a2, HUT2
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the urea transporter family. In mammalian cells, urea is the chief end product of nitrogen catabolism, and plays an important role in the urinary concentration mechanism. This protein is expressed in the inner medulla of the kidney, and mediates rapid transepithelial urea transport across the inner medullary collecting duct. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011] (from NCBI)

Genetic subdivision and candidate genes under selection in North American grey wolves.
Wayne et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Mol Ecol, Jan 2016
In several high-ranking candidate genes, including LEPR, TYR and SLC14A2, we found variation in allele frequencies that follow environmental changes in temperature and precipitation, a result that is consistent with local adaptation rather than genetic drift.

Hypoxia, AMPK activation and uterine artery vasoreactivity.
Moore et al., Aurora, United States. In J Physiol, Jul 2015
ABSTRACT: Genes near adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase-α1 (PRKAA1) have been implicated in the greater uterine artery (UtA) blood flow and relative protection from fetal growth restriction seen in altitude-adapted Andean populations.
High salt-diet reduces SLC14A1 gene expression in the choroid plexus of Dahl salt sensitive rats.
Sun et al., Changchun, China. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, Jun 2015
High salt intake (8%, for 2 weeks) did not alter the mRNA levels of UT-A (encoded by SLC14A2 gene) in the CP of either Dahl S or Dahl R rats.
First trimester screening for early and late preeclampsia based on maternal characteristics, biophysical parameters, and angiogenic factors.
Gratacós et al., Barcelona, Spain. In Prenat Diagn, Feb 2015
Data included the a priori risk (maternal characteristics), mean arterial pressure (MAP), and uterine artery (UtA) Doppler (11-13 weeks) in all cases.
Forms of Circulating Luteinizing Hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Receptor for the Prediction of Early and Late Preeclampsia in the First Trimester of Pregnancy.
Gratacós et al., Barcelona, Spain. In Fetal Diagn Ther, 2014
We recorded/measured maternal characteristics, mean arterial pressure (MAP), uterine artery (UtA) Doppler, placental growth factor (PlGF), soluble Fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (sFtl-1), and LHCGR forms (hCG-LHCGR and soluble LHCGR), and their independent predictive values were analyzed by logistic regression.
Transmembrane Inhibitor of RICTOR/mTORC2 in Hematopoietic Progenitors.
Scadden et al., Boston, United States. In Stem Cell Reports, 2014
Upstream of mTORC2 (UT2) negatively regulates mTORC2 enzymatic activity, reducing AKT(S473), PKCα, and NDRG1 phosphorylation and increasing FOXO transcriptional activity in an mTORC2-dependent manner.

Genes and proteins of urea transporters.
Blount et al., Atlanta, United States. In Subcell Biochem, 2013
The SLC14a urea transporter family contains two major subgroups: SLC14a1, the UT-B urea transporter originally isolated from erythrocytes; and SLC14a2, the UT-A group originally isolated from kidney inner medulla.
The urea transporter family (SLC14): physiological, pathological and structural aspects.
Hediger et al., Bangkok, Thailand. In Mol Aspects Med, 2013
Urea transporters (UTs) belonging to the solute carrier 14 (SLC14) family comprise two genes with a total of eight isoforms in mammals, UT-A1 to -A6 encoded by SLC14A2 and UT-B1 to -B2 encoded by SLC14A1.

Fröhlich et al., Atlanta, United States. In Am J Physiol Cell Physiol, 2010
Suggest that responsiveness to vasopressin that observed with UT-A1 can be introduced into the unresponsive UT-A2 variant through the Lc segment that is unique to UT-A1. In UT-A3 the Lc segment plays no significant role in its activation by cAMP.
