TAUT Required for the uptake of taurine. Transports both taurine and beta-alanine which requires sodium ions. Chloride ions are necessary for optimal uptake. Belongs to the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter (SNF) (TC 2.A.22) family. SLC6A6 subfamily. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
