Gene: SLC5A7 (solute carrier family 5 member 7) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC5A7
Name: solute carrier family 5 member 7
RGD ID: 1348839
Description: Exhibits choline:sodium symporter activity. Involved in acetylcholine biosynthetic process. Localizes to integral component of membrane; neuromuscular junction; and plasma membrane. Implicated in congenital myasthenic syndrome 20 and distal hereditary motor neuronopathy type 7A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
