Gene: SLC5A6 (solute carrier family 5 member 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC5A6
Name: solute carrier family 5 member 6
RGD ID: 69654
Description: Exhibits biotin transmembrane transporter activity and pantothenate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in biotin import across plasma membrane; pantothenate transmembrane transport; and transport across blood-brain barrier. Localizes to plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; (R)-lipoic acid; (R)-pantothenic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Na(+)-dependent multivitamin transporter; Na+-dependent multivitamin transporter; NERIB; SMVT; sodium-dependent multivitamin transporter; solute carrier family 5 (sodium-dependent vitamin transporter), member 6; solute carrier family 5 (sodium/multivitamin and iodide cotransporter), member 6
