Predicted to have gamma-aminobutyric acid:sodium symporter activity and neurotransmitter binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including gamma-aminobutyric acid import; negative regulation of GABAergic synaptic transmission; and positive regulation of gamma-aminobutyric acid secretion. Localizes to the axon and plasma membrane. Used to study schizophrenia. Orthologous to human SLC6A1 (solute carrier family 6 member 1).
