Exhibits high-affinity glutamate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including growth; neurotransmitter uptake; and positive regulation of glucose import. Localizes to the axolemma; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 41. Orthologous to human SLC1A2 (solute carrier family 1 member 2).
