CD98, also known as 4F2hc, is a ubiquitously expressed, 85-95 kDa member of the SLC3 (solute carrier 3) family of amino acid transporters. It is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein that covalently-associates with a variable number of small, 38-45 kDa, 12-transmembrane proteins that belong to the SLC7 family of molecules. The 120-130 kDa heterdimeric 4F2 complex is known to transport neutral or cationic amino acids with, or without, a contribution of sodium. It also interacts with Integrin beta 1 and beta 3 to promote cell polarization and migration. Notably, CD98 is "vertebrate-restricted," and its appearance evolutionarily has been linked to the onset of tumorigenesis. Over amino acids (aa) 105-529, human and mouse CD98 share 76% aa sequence identity.
