SLC36A1 Neutral amino acid/proton symporter. Has a pH-dependent electrogenic transport activity for small amino acids such as glycine, alanine and proline. Besides small apolar L-amino acids, it also recognizes their D-enantiomers and selected amino acid derivatives such as gamma-aminobutyric acid. Belongs to the amino acid/polyamine transporter 2 family. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
