Vesicular glutamate transporter 2

Name: Vesicular glutamate transporter 2
Description: Protein that mediates the uptake of glutamate into synaptic vesicles at presynaptic nerve terminals of excitatory neural cells. May also play a role in the endocrine glutamatergic system of other tissues such as pineal gland and pancreas. May also mediate the transport of inorganic phosphate. (Adapted from UniProt)
Has role: Transporter Protein
Abbreviation: VGLUT2
