SLC6A8 (human)

SLC6A8 Required for the uptake of creatine in muscles and brain. Defects in SLC6A8 are the cause of X-linked creatine deficiency syndrome (XL-CDS). XL-CDS causes developmental delay, hypotonia, mental retardation, seizures, short stature and midface hypoplasia. Belongs to the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter (SNF) (TC 2.A.22) family. SLC6A8 subfamily. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
