Solute carrier family 6, member 20 also known as SLC6A20 is a protein which in humans is encoded by the SLC6A20 gene.[1][2]


Transport of small hydrophilic substances across cell membranes is mediated by substrate-specific transporter proteins which have been classified into several families of related genes. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the subgroup of transporter with unidentified substrates within the Na+ and Cl- coupled transporter family. This gene is expressed in kidney, and its alternative splicing generates 2 transcript variants.[3]

Clinical significance

Mutation in the SLC6A20 gene are associated with iminoglycinuria.[4]
