Amino Acid Transport System X-AG (Glutamate Transporter) Summary

Description: A family of POTASSIUM and SODIUM-dependent acidic amino acid transporters that demonstrate a high affinity for GLUTAMIC ACID and ASPARTIC ACID. Several variants of this system are found in neuronal tissue.

Also Known As: Glutamate Transporter; Glutamate Aspartate Transporter; Amino Acid Transport System XAG; GLAST Glutamate-Aspartate Transporters; Glutamate Translocase Show All >>
