Gene: Slc17a6 (solute carrier family 17 member 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc17a6
Name: solute carrier family 17 member 6
RGD ID: 620531
Description: Exhibits L-glutamate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in hippocampus development and neural retina development. Localizes to cytoplasmic vesicle; excitatory synapse; and pericellular basket. Biomarker of transient cerebral ischemia. Orthologous to human SLC17A6 (solute carrier family 17 member 6); PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: differentation-associated Na-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter; differentiation-associated BNPI; differentiation-associated Na(+)-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter; Dnpi; solute carrier family 17 (sodium-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter), member 6; solute carrier family 17 (vesicular glutamate transporter), member 6; vesicular glutamate transporter 2; VGLUT2
