Gene: SLC1A2 (solute carrier family 1 member 2) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: SLC1A2
Name: solute carrier family 1 member 2
Description: Exhibits high-affinity glutamate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in D-aspartate import across plasma membrane; L-glutamate import across plasma membrane; and protein homotrimerization. Localizes to the cell surface and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 41. Biomarker of Huntington's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: EAAT2; EIEE41; excitatory amino acid transporter 2; excitotoxic amino acid transporter 2; glial high affinity glutamate transporter; GLT-1; glutamate/aspartate transporter II; HBGT; sodium-dependent glutamate/aspartate transporter 2; solute carrier family 1 (glial high affinity glutamate transporter), member 2; solute carrier family 1, member 2
