Gene: SLC6A5 (solute carrier family 6 member 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A5
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 5
Description: Exhibits glycine:sodium symporter activity. Involved in glycine import across plasma membrane and glycinergic synaptic transmission. Localizes to plasma membrane. Implicated in hyperekplexia 3.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: glycine transporter 2; GLYT-2; GLYT2; HKPX3; NET1; sodium- and chloride-dependent glycine transporter 2; solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, glycine), member 5
