High-affinity transporter for the intake of thiamine. Defects in SLC19A2 are the cause of thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia syndrome (TRMA); also known as Rogers syndrome. TRMA is an autosomal recessive disease with features that include megaloblastic anemia, mild thrombocytopenia and leucopenia, sensorineural deafness and diabetes mellitus. Belongs to the reduced folate carrier (RFC) transporter (TC 2.A.48) family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
