GeneCards Summary for SLC6A13 Gene
SLC6A13 (Solute Carrier Family 6 Member 13) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC6A13 include Traumatic Glaucoma and Neovascular Glaucoma. 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. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include neurotransmitter:sodium symporter activity and gamma-aminobutyric acid:sodium symporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC6A12.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SLC6A13 Gene
Sodium-dependent GABA and taurine transporter. In presynaptic terminals, regulates GABA signaling termination through GABA uptake. May also be involved in beta-alanine transport.
GABA transporters are sodium- and chloride-dependent members of the solute carrier family 6 (SLC6) that mediate the rapid removal of GABA and maintain low extracellular levels. Four 12-TM domain transporters have been identified and localized to neurons and glia.
