SLC38A3 (Solute Carrier Family 38 Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Amino acid transport across the plasma membrane. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include symporter activity and L-alanine transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC38A5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC38A3 Gene
Sodium-dependent amino acid/proton antiporter. Mediates electrogenic cotransport of glutamine and sodium ions in exchange for protons. Also recognizes histidine, asparagine and alanine. May mediate amino acid transport in either direction under physiological conditions. May play a role in nitrogen metabolism and synaptic transmission.
