From NCBI Gene:

Biological redox reactions require electron donors and acceptor. Vitamin B2 is the source for the flavin in flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN) which are common redox reagents. This gene encodes a member of the riboflavin (vitamin B2) transporter family. Haploinsufficiency of this protein can cause maternal riboflavin deficiency. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2013]

From UniProt:

Riboflavin transporter. Riboflavin transport is Na(+)-independent but moderately pH-sensitive. Activity is strongly inhibited by riboflavin analogs, such as lumiflavin. Weakly inhibited by flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). In case of infection by retroviruses, acts as a cell receptor to retroviral envelopes similar to the porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV-A).

  • Riboflavin deficiency

From UniProt:

Riboflavin deficiency (RBFVD): A disorder caused by a primary defect in riboflavin metabolism, or by dietary riboflavin deficiency. Riboflavin deficiency during pregnancy results in hypoglycemia, metabolic acidosis, dicarboxylic aciduria and elevated plasma acylcarnitine levels in the newborn. Treatment with oral riboflavin results in complete resolution of the clinical and biochemical findings. [MIM:615026]
