Literature associating SLC7A7 and amino acid metabolic disorder
Solute carrier family 7 (amino acid transporter light chain, y+L system), member 7; Involved in the sodium-independent uptake of dibasic amino acids and sodium-dependent uptake of some neutral amino acids. Requires coexpression with SLC3A2/4F2hc to mediate the uptake of arginine, leucine and glutamine. Plays a role in nitric oxide synthesis in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) via transport of L-arginine. Involved in the transport of L- arginine in monocytes; Belongs to the amino acid-polyamine-organocation (APC) superfamily. L-type amino acid transporter (LAT) (TC 2.A.3.8) family.
Synonyms: SLC7A7, SLC7A7p, hSLC7A7, D6RFE5, G3V273 ...
