Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits monoamine transmembrane transporter activity and neurotransmitter transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in neurotransmitter reuptake; norepinephrine uptake; and response to pain. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including membrane raft; neuronal cell body membrane; and presynaptic membrane. Is expressed in adrenal gland; lip; nervous system; and sensory organ. Used to study heart conduction disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension and neurocirculatory asthenia. Orthologous to human SLC6A2 (solute carrier family 6 member 2).
