Other names include: Sodium- and chloride-dependent GABA transporter 1; Solute carrier family 6 member 1; GAT-1; GABA transporter 1; GABATHG; GABATR. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 599 and a mass of 67.1 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. GAT1 is a member of the Sodium:neurotransmitter symporter (SNF) (TC 2.A.22) family, SLC6A1 subfamily. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Arabidopsis.
