Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Is predicted to enable glycine:sodium symporter activity. Involved in neurotransmitter reuptake. Acts upstream of or within neurotransmitter transport. Located in glycinergic synapse. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; central nervous system; esophagus; lens; and male reproductive gland or organ. Used to study hyperekplexia 3. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hyperekplexia 3. Orthologous to human SLC6A5 (solute carrier family 6 member 5).
