Gene: Slc1a2 (solute carrier family 1 member 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc1a2
Name: solute carrier family 1 member 2
Description: Exhibits high-affinity glutamate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in L-glutamate transmembrane transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including astrocyte projection; dendrite; and presynaptic membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 41. Orthologous to human SLC1A2 (solute carrier family 1 member 2); PARTICIPATES IN amyotrophic lateral sclerosis pathway; glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (4-chloro-2-methylphenoxy)acetic acid; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Eaat2; excitatory amino acid transporter 2; glial glutamate transporter GLT1/V3; glial glutamate transporter GLT1/V4; Glt; GLT-1; GluT; GluT-R; glutamate transporter; glutamate transporter 1; high affinity glucose transporter; sodium-dependent glutamate/aspartate transporter 2; solute carrier family 1 (glial high affinity glutamate transporter), member 2; solute carrier family 1, member 2
