Symbol/Gene Name:  SLC7A5

Alias:  Large neutral amino acids transporter small subunit 1,4F2 light chain,4F2 LC,4F2LC,CD98 light chain,Integral membrane protein E16,E16,L-type amino acid transporter 1,hLAT1,Solute carrier family 7 member 5,y+ system cationic amino acid transporter

Uniprot: Q01650

Background: The heterodimer with SLC3A2 functions as sodium-independent, high-affinity transporter that mediates uptake of large neutral amino acids such as phenylalanine, tyrosine, L-DOPA, leucine, histidine, methionine and tryptophan (PubMed:9751058, PubMed:10049700, PubMed:11557028, PubMed:10391915, PubMed:10574970, PubMed:11311135, PubMed:11564694, PubMed:12117417, PubMed:12225859, PubMed:25998567, PubMed:30867591). Functions as an amino acid exchanger (PubMed:11557028, PubMed: 12117417, PubMed:12225859, PubMed:30867591). May play a role in the transport of L-DOPA across the blood-brain barrier (By similarity). May act as the major transporter of tyrosine in fibroblasts (Probable). May mediate blood-to-retina L-leucine transport across the inner blood-retinal barrier (By similarity). Can mediate the transport of thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) across the cell membrane (PubMed: 11564694, PubMed: 12225859). When associated with LAPTM4B, the heterodimer formed by SLC3A2 and SLC7A5 is recruited to lysosomes to promote leucine uptake into these organelles, and thereby mediates mTORC1 activation (PubMed:25998567). Involved in the uptake of toxic methylmercury (MeHg) when administered as the L-cysteine or D,L-homocysteine complexes (PubMed:12117417). Involved in the cellular activity of small molecular weight nitrosothiols, via the stereoselective transport of L-nitrosocysteine (L-CNSO) across the membrane (PubMed:15769744).
