GeneID: 83612 Rat SLC32A1

Swiss-port # O35458 Rat Vesicular inhibitory amino acid transporter

Gene Symbol SLC32A1
Gene Full Name solute carrier family 32 (GABA vesicular transporter), member 1
Background The Vesicular GABA Amino Acid Transporter (VGAT) is responsible for transport of the inhibitory neurotransmitter into synaptic vesicles(McIntire et al., 1997). The VGAT protein (also known as the Vesicular Inhibitory Amino Aid Transporter or VIAAT) is expressed in synaptic vesicles of both glycine and GABAergic synapses throughout the CNS (Chaudhry et al., 1998). Expression of the VGAT protein changes during development and also in response to patterns of neuronal activity (De et al., 2005).
