Vesicular glutamate transporter 1 (Vglut1) is encoded by the gene Slc17a7 and belongs to the vesicular glutamate transporter family. Vglut1 is expressed in glutamatergic neurons in brain regions including the cerebellum, cerebral cortex and hippocampus at synaptic vesicles. Isoform 2 is expressed in retinal. Vglut1 functions to uptake glutamate into synaptic vesicles in excitatory neural cells. Altered expression of Vglut1 has been implicated in several neurological and psychiatric diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and schizophrenia.
