GeneCards Summary for SLC38A2 Gene: 
SLC38A2 (solute carrier family 38, member 2) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC38A2 include adult syndrome, and temporal lobe epilepsy, and among its related super-pathways are Amino acid transport across the plasma membrane and Neurotransmitter Receptor Binding And Downstream Transmission In The Postsynaptic Cell. GO annotations related to this gene include amino acid transmembrane transporter activity and symporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC38A4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: S38A2_HUMAN, Q96QD8
Function: Functions as a sodium-dependent amino acid transporter. Mediates the saturable, pH-sensitive and
electrogenic cotransport of neutral amino acids and sodium ions with a stoichiometry of 1:1. May function in the
transport of amino acids at the blood-brain barrier and in the supply of maternal nutrients to the fetus through
the placenta
