gene: dat-1 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Legacy GBrowse]
Is an ortholog of human SLC6A2 (solute carrier family 6 member 2). Exhibits amine transmembrane transporter activity; chloride channel activity; and dopamine:sodium symporter activity. Is involved in several processes, including dopamine uptake involved in synaptic transmission; negative regulation of cellular response to manganese ion; and negative regulation of cellular response to oxidopamine. Localizes to neuron projection membrane; neuronal cell body membrane; and presynaptic membrane. Is expressed in dopaminergic neurons. Human ortholog(s) of this gene are implicated in Hartnup disease and creatine transporter deficiency.
