Summary
Predicted to enable L-amino acid transmembrane transporter activity and basic amino acid transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in basic amino acid transmembrane transport and ornithine transport. Predicted to act upstream of or within amino acid transport. Predicted to be located in intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and plasma membrane. Is expressed in brain; embryo; and gonad. Orthologous to human SLC7A6 (solute carrier family 7 member 6).

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
