Gene: Slc1a3 (solute carrier family 1 member 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc1a3
Name: solute carrier family 1 member 3
Description: Exhibits high-affinity glutamate transmembrane transporter activity; involved in amino acid import across plasma membrane, malate-aspartate shuttle, and response to inorganic substance; localizes to several cellular components, including the basolateral plasma membrane, dendritic spine, and integral component of plasma membrane; orthologous to human SLC1A3 (solute carrier family 1 member 3); PARTICIPATES IN nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide metabolic pathway; glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-10-[(DIMETHYLAMINO)METHYL]-4-ETHYL-4,9-DIHYDROXY-1H-PYRANO[3',4':6,7]INOLIZINO[1,2-B]-QUINOLINE-3,14(4H,12H)-DIONE; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
