Gene: SLC6A9 (solute carrier family 6 member 9) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A9
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 9
Description: Predicted to have glycine:sodium symporter activity. Predicted to be involved in amino acid transmembrane transport; glycine secretion, neurotransmission; and neurotransmitter uptake. Predicted to localize to plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DKFZp547A1118; GCENSG; glycine transporter 1; glyT-1; GLYT1; sodium- and chloride-dependent glycine transporter 1; solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, glycine), member 9
