Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: Atrc1; Cat-1; CAT1; cationic amino acid transporter, y+ system; cationinc amino acid transporter 1; EcoR; ecotropic retroviral leukemia receptor; ecotropic retrovirus receptor; ERR; high affinity cationic amino acid transporter 1; solute carrier family 7 (cationic amino acid transporter, y+ system), member 1; Solute carrier family 7 member A1 (amino acid transporter cationic 1); solute carrier family 7, member 1; system Y+ basic amino acid transporter
