CD98 cDNA Clone: Expression and Clone Vector / Plasmid

CD98 cDNA / Gene Overview

SLC3A2 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 11q12.3. The SLC3A2 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, and frog.172 organisms have orthologs with human gene SLC3A2.

CD98 cDNA / Gene Function

This gene is a member of the solute carrier family and encodes a cell surface, transmembrane protein. The protein exists as the heavy chain of a heterodimer, covalently bound through di-sulfide bonds to one of several possible light chains. The encoded transporter plays a role in regulation of intracellular calcium levels and transports L-type amino acids. Alternatively spliced transcript variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]
