Gene: Slc38a2 (solute carrier family 38, member 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc38a2
Name: solute carrier family 38, member 2
Description: Exhibits L-glutamine transmembrane transporter activity and L-serine transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to mechanical stimulus; glycine betaine transport; and neutral amino acid transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including brush border; neuronal cell body; and sarcolemma. Biomarker of visual epilepsy. Orthologous to human SLC38A2 (solute carrier family 38 member 2); PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazinane; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: amino acid transporter A2; amino acid transporter cationic 2; amino acid transporter cationic 2 (low affinity); amino acid transporter system A2; amino acid transporter, cationic 2 (low affinity); Ata2; Atrc2; Sat2; Snat2; sodium-coupled neutral amino acid transporter 2; solute carrier family 38 member 2; system A amino acid transporter 2; system A transporter 1; system N amino acid transporter 2
