Gene: SLC6A1 (solute carrier family 6 member 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A1
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 1
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 axon; cell surface; and plasma membrane. Biomarker of temporal lobe epilepsy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
