ASC transporters mediate Na+-dependent exchange of small neutral amino acids such as Ala, Ser, Cys and Thr and their structure is predicted to be similar to that of the glutamate transporters [1,9]. ASCT1 and ASCT2 also exhibit thermodynamically uncoupled chloride channel activity associated with substrate transport [3,10]. Whereas EAATs counter-transport K+ (see above) ASCTs do not and their function is independent of the intracellular concentration of K+ [10].
