|Other Names||Sodium-coupled neutral amino acid transporter 4, Amino acid transporter A3, Na(+)-coupled neutral amino acid transporter 4, Solute carrier family 38 member 4, System A amino acid transporter 3, System N amino acid transporter 3, SLC38A4, ATA3, NAT3, SNAT4|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||ATA3, NAT3, SNAT4|
|Function||Sodium-dependent amino acid transporter. Mediates electrogenic symport of neutral amino acids and sodium ions. Has a broad specificity, with a preference for Ala, followed by His, Cys, Asn, Ser, Gly, Val, Thr, Gln and Met. May mediate sodium- independent transport of cationic amino acids, such as Arg and Lys. Amino acid uptake is pH-dependent, with low transport activities at pH 6.5, intermediate at pH 7.0 and highest between pH 7.5 and 8.5.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in embryonic and adult liver, and at lower levels in adult muscle, kidney and pancreas. Detected in placenta syncytiotrophoblasts throughout gestation. Detected in fetal blood vessels.|

SLC38A4 is found predominantly in liver and transportsboth cationic and neutral amino acids. The transport of cationicamino acids by SLC38A4 is Na(+) and pH independent, while thetransport of neutral amino acids is Na(+) and pH dependent(Hatanaka et al., 2001 [PubMed 11342143]).
