Gene: SLC1A3 (solute carrier family 1 member 3) Homo sapiens
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 and inorganic ion transmembrane transport. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane. Implicated in episodic ataxia type 6.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
