Gene: SLC6A6 (solute carrier family 6 member 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A6
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 6
Description: Predicted to have gamma-aminobutyric acid:sodium symporter activity and neurotransmitter binding activity. Predicted to be involved in taurine transport. Predicted to localize to the neuron projection and plasma membrane. Biomarker of multiple system atrophy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
