GeneCards Summary for SLC1A6 Gene

SLC1A6 (Solute Carrier Family 1 (High Affinity Aspartate/Glutamate Transporter), Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. GO annotations related to this gene include L-glutamate transmembrane transporter activity and L-aspartate transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC1A3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC1A6 Gene

  • Transports L-glutamate and also L- and D-aspartate. Seems to act as a symport by cotransporting sodium

Tocris Summary for SLC1A6 Gene

  • Glutamate transporters, also known as excitatory amino acid transporters (EAATs), are sodium- and potassium-dependent members of the solute carrier family 6 (SLC1), widely distributed throughout the brain. There are five EAAT subtypes, each with a specific distribution.
