Solute carrier family 1 (glial high-affinity glutamate transporter), member 3, also known as SLC1A3, is a protein that, in humans, is encoded by the SLC1A3 gene.[5] SLC1A3 is also often called the GLutamate ASpartate Transporter (GLAST) or Excitatory Amino Acid Transporter 1 (EAAT1) .

GLAST is predominantly expressed in the plasma membrane, allowing it to remove glutamate from the extracellular space.[6] It has also been localized in the inner mitochondrial membrane as part of the malate-aspartate shuttle.[7]

Mechanism[edit]

GLAST functions in vivo as a homotrimer.[8] GLAST mediates the transport of glutamic and aspartic acid with the cotransport of three Na+ and one H+ cations and counter transport of one K+ cation. This co-transport coupling (or symport) allows the transport of glutamate into cells against a concentration gradient.[9]

Tissue distribution[edit]

GLAST is expressed throughout the CNS,[10] and is highly expressed in astrocytes and Bergmann glia in the cerebellum.[11][12] In the retina, GLAST is expressed in Muller cells.[13] GLAST is also expressed in a number of other tissues including cardiac myocytes.[7]

Clinical significance[edit]

It is associated with type 6 episodic_ataxia.[14]

Pharmacology[edit]

DL-threo-beta-benzyloxyaspartate (TBOA) is an inhibitor of the excitatory amino acid transporters.[15]

Selective inhibitors for GLAST have recently been discovered based on 25 combinations of substitutions at the 4 and 7 positions of 2-amino-5-oxo-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-4H-chromene-3-carbonitril.[16]
