Gene: SLC17A8 (solute carrier family 17 member 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC17A8
Name: solute carrier family 17 member 8
Description: Predicted to have L-glutamate transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in neurotransmitter loading into synaptic vesicle. Predicted to localize to the excitatory synapse and integral component of synaptic vesicle membrane. Implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 25.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: deafness, autosomal dominant 25; DFNA25; solute carrier family 17 (sodium-dependent inorganic phosphate cotransporter), member 8; solute carrier family 17 (vesicular glutamate transporter), member 8; vesicular glutamate transporter 3; VGLUT3
