Gene: SLC7A3 (solute carrier family 7 member 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC7A3
Name: solute carrier family 7 member 3
Description: This gene encodes a member of the solute carrier family 7. The encoded protein is a sodium-independent cationic amino acid transporter. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcripts that encoded the same protein.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ATRC3; CAT-3; CAT3; cationic amino acid transporter 3; FLJ14541; MGC20687; solute carrier family 7 (cationic amino acid transporter, y+ system), member 3; solute carrier family 7, member 3
