The solute carrier family 1 member 7 (SLC1A7) protein was initially identified as a glutamate transporter coupled to a chloride conductance that is expressed primarily in the retina (1). More recent evidence indicates that is it widely expressed in peripheral tissues, also (2). Experiments have shown that SLC1A7 functions as a low-affinity/low-capacity glutamate transport, with an anion channel optimized for anion conductance in the negative voltage range (3). In the retina, SLC1A7 co-localizes with the serum and glucocorticoid dependent kinase SGK1, and its cell surface expression and activity is regulated SGK1 and its isoform SGK3 (4).
