2.A.22.2.6
Glycine:Na+ transporter, GlyT2b (glycine/3Na+/1Cl- symporter, SLC6A5). GlyT2 and VIAAT cooperate to determine the vesicular glycinergic phenotype (Aubrey et al., 2007). Startle disease in Irish wolfhounds is associated with a microdeletion in the glycine transporter GlyT2 gene (Gill et al., 2011). A dominant hyperekplexia (startle disease) mutation Y705C in humans alters trafficking and the biochemical properties of GlyT2 (Gimenez et al. 2012).
