Gene: Slc17a8 (solute carrier family 17 member 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc17a8
Name: solute carrier family 17 member 8
CRRD ID: 628870
Description: Predicted to have L-glutamate transmembrane transporter activity and neurotransmitter transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in brain development; cochlea development; and neural retina development. Localizes to several cellular components, including axon; dendrite; and glial limiting end-foot. Biomarker of cochlear disease; sciatic neuropathy; transient cerebral ischemia; and trichinosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 25. Orthologous to human SLC17A8 (solute carrier family 17 member 8); PARTICIPATES IN auditory mechanotransduction pathway; glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: solute carrier family 17 (sodium-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter), member 8; solute carrier family 17 (vesicular glutamate transporter), member 8; vesicular glutamate transporter 3; Vglut3
