GENE - TERM ANNOTATION REPORT

RGD ID: 628870
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Slc17a8
Name: solute carrier family 17 member 8
Acc ID: GO:0035249
Term: synaptic transmission, glutamatergic
Definition: The vesicular release of glutamate from a presynapse, across a chemical synapse, the subsequent activation of glutamate receptors at the postsynapse of a target cell (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) and the effects of this activation on the postsynaptic membrane potential and ionic composition of the postsynaptic cytosol. This process encompasses both spontaneous and evoked release of neurotransmitter and all parts of synaptic vesicle exocytosis. Evoked transmission starts with the arrival of an action potential at the presynapse.
Definition Source(s): GOC:dos
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
