Entrez Gene Summary for SLC6A14 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the solute carrier family 6. Members of this family are sodium and chloride dependent neurotransmitter transporters. The encoded protein transports both neutral and cationic amino acids. This protein may also function as a beta-alanine carrier. Mutations in this gene may be associated with X-linked obesity. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome X.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for SLC6A14 Gene

SLC6A14 (Solute Carrier Family 6 (Amino Acid Transporter), Member 14) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC6A14 include obesity bmiq11 and meconium ileus.
