Abstract

Four L-glutamate neurotransmitter transporters, the three Na(+)-dependent GLAST-1, GLT-1 and EAAC-1, and the Cl(-)-dependent EAAT-4, form a new family of structurally related integral plasma membrane proteins with different distribution in the central nervous system. They may have pivotal functions in the regulation of synaptic L-glutamate concentration during neurotransmission and are believed to prevent glutamate neurotoxicity. To investigate the specific physiological and pathophysiological role of the neuronal EAAC-1, which is also expressed in kidney and small intestine, we have generated two independent mouse lines lacking EAAC-1. eaac-1(-/-) mice develop dicarboxylic aminoaciduria. No neurodegeneration has been observed during a period of >12 months, but homozygous mutants display a significantly reduced spontaneous locomotor activity.
