SLC38A2 (ATA2), associated with the plasma membrane, mediates the uptake of neutral amino acids, especially alanine, asparagine, glutamine, glycine, leucine, methionine, proline, and threonine in a sodium ion-dependent transport process. Northern blotting experiments indicate gene expression in placenta and heart, and at lower levels in other tissues including brain, lung, skeletal muscle, spleen, stomach, testis, kidney, and intestine (Hatanaka et al. 2000).
