Gene: Slc6a7 (solute carrier family 6 member 7) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc6a7
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 7
Description: Exhibits L-proline transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in proline transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; integral component of presynaptic membrane; and integral component of synaptic vesicle membrane. Orthologous to human SLC6A7 (solute carrier family 6 member 7); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: L-proline transporter; proline transporter; Prot; sodium-dependent proline transporter; solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter L-proline) member 7; solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter), member 7; solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, L-proline), member 7
