Gene: SLC38A5 (solute carrier family 38 member 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC38A5
Name: solute carrier family 38 member 5
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a system N sodium-coupled amino acid transporter. The encoded protein transports glutamine, asparagine, histidine, serine, alanine, and glycine across the cell membrane, but does not transport charged amino acids, imino acids, or N-alkylated amino acids. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, but the full-length nature of some of these variants has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
