Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have cytoskeletal protein binding activity and sodium:chloride symporter activity. Involved in neurotransmitter reuptake and response to pain. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the membrane raft; neuronal cell body membrane; and presynaptic membrane. Used to study heart conduction disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension and neurocirculatory asthenia. Is expressed in adrenal gland; lip; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SLC6A2 (solute carrier family 6 member 2).
