Gene: SLC6A12 (solute carrier family 6 member 12) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A12
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 12
Description: Predicted to have gamma-aminobutyric acid:sodium symporter activity and neurotransmitter binding activity. Predicted to be involved in amino acid transport. Predicted to localize to the neuron projection and plasma membrane; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; acetylsalicylic acid; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
