Gene: Slc1a6 (solute carrier family 1 member 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc1a6
Name: solute carrier family 1 member 6
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits anion transmembrane transporter activity; high-affinity glutamate transmembrane transporter activity; L-glutamate transmembrane transporter activity (ortholog); INVOLVED IN L-glutamate import across plasma membrane; L-glutamate transmembrane transport; neurotransmitter uptake (ortholog); PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; FOUND IN integral component of plasma membrane; integral component of postsynaptic membrane; parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; androgen antagonist
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: EAAT4; excitatory amino acid transporter 4; high affinity aspartate/glutamate transporter; high-affinity neuronal glutamate transporter; MGC114297; sodium-dependent glutamate/aspartate transporter; solute carrier family 1 (high affinity aspartate/glutamate transporter), member 6
