Gene names: SLC1A7 , EAAT5
Protein names and data: EAA5_HUMAN , Excitatory amino acid transporter 5 , Retinal glutamate transporter; Solute carrier family 1 member 7 Lenght: 560 a.a.
Mass: 60658 Da
fasta formatted sequence

Function: Transports L-glutamate; the L-glutamate uptake is sodium- and voltage-dependent and chloride-independent. Its associated chloride conductance may participate in visual processing.
Cellular location: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: Expressed primarily in retina. Detectable in liver, heart, muscle and brain.
