Gene: Slc38a2 (solute carrier family 38, member 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Slc38a2
Name: solute carrier family 38, member 2
Description: Exhibits L-glutamine transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in glutamine transport. Localizes to the plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including bone; brain meninges; placenta; submandibular gland primordium; and tooth. Orthologous to human SLC38A2 (solute carrier family 38 member 2); PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (R)-lipoic acid; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
