Gene: Slc7a8 (solute carrier family 7 member 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc7a8
Name: solute carrier family 7 member 8
Description: Predicted to have peptide antigen binding activity and transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in L-amino acid transport; amino acid transmembrane transport; and neutral amino acid transport. Predicted to localize to the plasma membrane. Orthologous to human SLC7A8 (solute carrier family 7 member 8); PARTICIPATES IN amiloride pharmacodynamics pathway; bendroflumethiazide pharmacodynamics pathway; bumetanide pharmacodynamics pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-amino-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranose.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: cationic amino acid transporter y+ system; cationic amino acid transporter, y+ system; L-type amino acid transporter 2; large neutral amino acids transporter small subunit 2; Lat2; Lat4; solute carrier family 7 (amino acid transporter light chain, L system), member 8; solute carrier family 7 (cationic amino acid transporter, y+ system), member 8
