Summaries for SLC6A2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC6A2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter family. This member is a multi-pass membrane protein, which is responsible for reuptake of norepinephrine into presynaptic nerve terminals and is a regulator of norepinephrine homeostasis. Mutations in this gene cause orthostatic intolerance, a syndrome characterized by lightheadedness, fatigue, altered mentation and syncope. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified in this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]

GeneCards Summary for SLC6A2 Gene

SLC6A2 (Solute Carrier Family 6 (Neurotransmitter Transporter), Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC6A2 include orthostatic intolerance and generalized anxiety disorder. Among its related pathways are Signaling by FGFR and RhoGDI Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include monoamine transmembrane transporter activity and norepinephrine:sodium symporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC6A4.
