Background Information

OCTN2 (Organic Cation/Carnitine Transporter 2), encoded by SLC22A5, is a ubiquitously expressed organic anion/cation transporter. OCTN2 plays a key role in absorption, tissue distribution and renal reabsorption of L-carnitine which is an essential cofactor in fat metabolism. Defects in the OCTN2 are responsible for primary carnitine deficiency. OCTN2 also transports some important respiratory medicines (such as tiotropium), and due to its expression in the lung, may influence the disposition and absorption of these medicines in the lung.
