ⓘ Cystine/glutamate transporter

Cystine/glutamate transporter is an antiporter that in humans is encoded by the SLC7A11 gene.

In the SLC7A11 gene codes for a sodium-independent cystine-glutamate antiporter, which depends on the chloride, known as system XC - or xart. It regulates synaptic activity stimulates extrasynaptic receptors and produces nonvesicular glutamate. This gene is expressed on astrocytes and couples the uptake of one molecule of cystine with release of one molecule of glutamate. Dimer cystine gets picked up by glial cells and monomer cystine, cysteine, is neurons. The expression of XC - was discovered in the brain, with higher expression found in the basolateral amygdala and prefrontal cortex. Inhibition of system XC - has been found to change the number of actions, which suggests that it plays a key role in excitatory signals.
