Molecular cloning and expression analysis of a cDNA encoding a glutamate transporter in the honeybee brain

Kucharski, Robert; Ball, Eldon; Hayward, David; Maleszka, Ryszard


We have cloned and characterized a cDNA encoding a putative glutamate transporter, Am-EAAT, from the brain of the honeybee, Apis mellifera. The 543-amino-acid AmEAAT gene product shares the highest sequence identity (54%) with the human EAAT2 subtype. Am-EAAT is expressed predominantly in the brain, and its transcripts are abundant in the optic lobes and inner compact Kenyon cells of the mushroom bodies (MBs), with most other regions of the brain showing lower levels of Am-EAAT expression. High...[Show more]
