Gene: SLC1A6 (solute carrier family 1 member 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC1A6
Name: solute carrier family 1 member 6
Description: Predicted to have high-affinity glutamate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in neurotransmitter uptake. Localizes to the intermediate filament cytoskeleton and plasma membrane; PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2-hydroxypropanoic acid; 3,4-dichloroaniline; all-trans-retinoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: EAAT4; excitatory amino acid transporter 4; MGC33092; MGC43671; sodium-dependent glutamate/aspartate transporter; solute carrier family 1 (high affinity aspartate/glutamate transporter), member 6
