SLC29A2 is a member of the equilibrative nucleoside transporter family which plays a key role in nucleoside and nucleobase uptake for salvage pathways of nucleotide synthesis (1,2). SLC29A2 is a transmembrane glycoprotein that mediates the cellular uptake of nucleosides from the surrounding medium (3). As a nucleoside transporter, SLC29A2 plays an important role in the uptake of nucleoside-based anti-cancer drugs; polymorphisms of point mutations in the gene encoding this protein may affect the efficacy of these drugs (4).
