Glutamate aspartate transporter

Glutamate aspartate transporter

Solute carrier family 1 (glial high affinity glutamate transporter), member 3, also known as SLC1A3, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: SLC1A3 solute carrier family 1 (glial high affinity glutamate transporter), member 3| url =| accessdate = ]

The GLutamate ASpartate Transporter (GLAST) is a protein in the inner mitochondrial membrane which is part of the malate-aspartate shuttle.cite journal | author = Ralphe JC, Segar JL, Schutte BC, Scholz TD | title = Localization and function of the brain excitatory amino acid transporter type 1 in cardiac mitochondria | journal = J. Mol. Cell. Cardiol. | volume = 37 | issue = 1 | pages = 33–41 | year = 2004 | pmid = 15242733 | doi = 10.1016/j.yjmcc.2004.04.008 | issn = ] GLAST is also often called the Excitatory Amino Acid Transporter 1 (EAAT1).


GLAST mediates the transport of glutamic and aspartic acid with the cotransport of three Na+ and one H+ cations and counter transport of one K+ cation. This co-transport coupling allows the transport of glutamate into cells against a concentration gradient.cite journal | author = Kanai Y, Hediger MA | title = The glutamate/neutral amino acid transporter family SLC1: molecular, physiological and pharmacological aspects | journal = Pflugers Arch. | volume = 447 | issue = 5 | pages = 469–79 | year = 2004 | pmid = 14530974 | doi = 10.1007/s00424-003-1146-4 | issn = ]

Tissue distribution

GLAST is highly expressed in astrocytes and Bergmann glia in the cerebellum.cite journal | author = Storck T, Schulte S, Hofmann K, Stoffel W | title = Structure, expression, and functional analysis of a Na(+)-dependent glutamate/aspartate transporter from rat brain | journal = Proc.

Clinical significance

It is associated with type 6 .cite journal | author = Jen JC, Wan J, Palos TP, Howard BD, Baloh RW | title = Mutation in the glutamate transporter EAAT1 causes episodic ataxia, hemiplegia, and seizures | journal = Neurology | volume = 65 | issue = 4 | pages = 529–34 | year = 2005 | pmid = 16116111 | doi = 10.1212/01.wnl.0000172638.58172.5a | issn = ]
