Gene: Slc6a6 (solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, taurine), member 6) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Slc6a6
Name: solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, taurine), member 6
Description: Exhibits beta-alanine transmembrane transporter activity and taurine transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in beta-alanine transport; modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; and taurine transport. Localizes to GABA-ergic synapse and integral component of postsynaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; central nervous system; placenta; retina; and tooth. Used to study retinitis pigmentosa. Orthologous to human SLC6A6 (solute carrier family 6 member 6); INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3',4,4',5-Pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AA589629; C80501; sodium- and chloride-dependent taurine transporter; solute carrier family 6 member 6; taurine/beta-alanine transporter; Taut
