SLC1A5

A gene on chromosome 19q13.3 that encodes a sodium-dependent amino acid transporter with broad substrate specificity and a preference for zwitterionic amino acids. It accepts as substrates neutral amino acids, including glutamine, asparagine, and branched-chain and aromatic amino acids; it excludes methylated, anionic and cationic amino acids. SLC1A5 also acts as a cell surface receptor for feline endogenous virus RD114, baboon M7 endogenous virus and type-D simian retroviruses.
