Gene: SLC6A8 (solute carrier family 6 member 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A8
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 8
Description: Predicted to have gamma-aminobutyric acid:sodium symporter activity and neurotransmitter binding activity. Involved in creatine transmembrane transport. Predicted to localize to the neuron projection and plasma membrane. Implicated in creatine transporter deficiency and intellectual disability.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
