Gene: SLC18A3 (solute carrier family 18 member A3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC18A3
Name: solute carrier family 18 member A3
Description: This gene is a member of the vesicular amine transporter family. The encoded transmembrane protein transports acetylcholine into secretory vesicles for release into the extracellular space. Acetylcholine transport utilizes a proton gradient established by a vacuolar ATPase. This gene is located within the first intron of the choline acetyltransferase gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
