Common Name:TAUT
HGNC Symbol:SLC6A6
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter), member 6
HGNC ID:11052
Chromosome:Chr.3(+): 14444076-14530857 GRCh37
OMIM Phenotype:None
Nucleotide RefSeq:NM_001134367
Protein RefSeq:NP_001127839
Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: Taurine in HeLa cells Ramamoorthy et al 1994, Biochem J, Vol 300 (Pt 3), p.893-900 Specific for beta-amino acids Ramamoorthy et al 1994, Biochem J, Vol 300 (Pt 3), p.893-900 Substrate In Vivo Evidence: Although there is no direct evidence for a role of TAUT in pathological states, abnormal taurine levels are associated with several disorders. Thus, TAUT may play a role in taurine deficiency diseases including abnormal renal development and retinal-related blindness. Additionally, SLC6A6 maps to a chromosomal region associated with mental retardation Chen et al 2003, Pflugers Arch Tissue Distribution Evidence: Placenta and skeletal muscle (high), heart, lung, brain, kidney, pancreas (intermediate), liver (low) by Northern Blot analysis Ramamoorthy et al 1994, Biochem J, Vol 300 (Pt 3), p.893-900

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript

The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.) Click on a transcript or tissue to resort the data.
