Gene: SLC6A8 (solute carrier family 6 member 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A8
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 8
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a plasma membrane protein whose function is to transport creatine into and out of cells. Defects in this gene can result in X-linked creatine deficiency syndrome. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
