The ABCC2 gene encodes a protein called multidrug resistance protein 2 (MRP2). It is involved in the transport of substances out of cells and is mostly found in the liver, kidneys, intestine, and placenta. MRP2 clears certain drugs from organs and tissues, playing a part in drug metabolism (R). 

Mutations in this gene can cause jaundice and cancer (R). 

It's better to have this gene increased most of the time.
