Gene: SLC17A6 (solute carrier family 17 member 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC17A6
Name: solute carrier family 17 member 6
Description: Predicted to have L-glutamate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in neurotransmitter loading into synaptic vesicle. Predicted to localize to excitatory synapse and integral component of synaptic vesicle membrane; PARTICIPATES IN glutamate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH aflatoxin B1; arsenite(3-); cytarabine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: differentiation-associated BNPI; differentiation-associated Na(+)-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter; 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
