The sodium-coupled neutral amino acid transporter 2 (SNAT2) is a protein that is expressed ubiquitously in mammalian tissues and that displays Na(+), voltage and pH dependent activity. This transporter mediates the passage of small zwitterionic amino acids across the cell membrane and regulates the cell homeostasis and its volume. We have examined the(More)
Solute neutral amino acid transporter 5 (SNAT5/SN2) is a member of the System N family, expressed in glial cells in the adult brain, able to transport glutamine, histidine or glycine among other substrates. Its tight association with synapses and its electroneutral mode of operation that allows the bidirectional movement of substrates, supports the idea(More)
