|Function||Sodium-dependent, high-affinity amino acid transporter that mediates the uptake of L-glutamate and also L-aspartate and D-aspartate (PubMed:7521911, PubMed:8123008, PubMed:20477940, PubMed:26690923, PubMed:28032905, PubMed:28424515). Functions as a symporter that transports one amino acid molecule together with two or three Na(+) ions and one proton, in parallel with the counter-transport of one K(+) ion (PubMed:20477940). Mediates Cl(-) flux that is not coupled to amino acid transport; this avoids the accumulation of negative charges due to aspartate and Na(+) symport (PubMed:20477940). Plays a redundant role in the rapid removal of released glutamate from the synaptic cleft, which is essential for terminating the postsynaptic action of glutamate (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in brain (PubMed:8218410, PubMed:7521911, PubMed:8123008). Detected at very much lower levels in heart, lung, placenta and skeletal muscle (PubMed:7521911, PubMed:8123008). Highly expressed in cerebellum, but also found in frontal cortex, hippocampus and basal ganglia (PubMed:7521911).|

Solute carrier family 1 (glial high-affinity glutamate transporter), member 3, also known as SLC1A3, EAAT1 or GLAST, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SLC1A3 gene. This gene is a member of high affinity glutamate transporter family. It is mapped to chromosome 5p13.2 by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). And this gene transports L-glutamate and also L- and D-aspartate. It is essential for terminating the postsynaptic action of glutamate by rapidly removing released glutamate from the synaptic cleft. Furthermore, this gene acts as a symport by cotransporting sodium.
