Antigenic Blocking Peptide Excitatory amino acid transporter 2
Transports L-glutamate and also L- and D-aspartate. Essential for terminating the postsynaptic action of glutamate by rapidly removing released glutamate from the synaptic cleft. Acts as a symport by cotransporting sodium.
Immunogen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to C terminal amino acids 550-574 of Human EAAT2.
Sequence: KVTLAANGKSADCSVEEEPWKREK. Molecular Function: Glutamate:sodium symporter activity, L-glutamate transmembrane transporter activity, sodium:dicarboxylate symporter activity
Subcellular Location: Membrane, multi-pass membrane protein. Blood, Brain, Eye, Kidney, Liver, Lymph Node, Muscle, Nerve, Placenta, Spinal Cord tissues are correlated with this protein. EAAT2 also interacts with the following gene(s): ADORA1, GLUL, MTDH, SLC29A1. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Brain Diseases, Cardiovascular Diseases, Disease Models, Animal, Epilepsy, Inflammation, Movement Disorders, Necrosis, Nervous System Diseases, Pain are some of the diseases may be linked to EAAT2 Peptide.
