Creatine transport across the plasma membrane

Stable Identifier
Homo sapiens
Locations in the PathwayBrowser

The SLC6A8 transport protein associated with the plasma membrane mediates the uptake of extracellular creatine and a sodium ion (Sora et al. 1994). Molecular and biochemical studies of patients deficient in SLC6A8 protein confirm this function in vivo (e.g., Salomons et al. 2003).
