Background
The sodium- and chloride-dependent betaine-GABA transporter 1 (BGT 1) is a member of the neurotransmitter-sodium-symporter transporter family. It mediates cellular uptake of betaine and GABA in a sodium- and chloride-dependent process.
BGT 1 is involved in betaine transport in the kidney medulla to withstand hyperosmolarity. BGT 1 also transports GABA but its exact role in brain is not yet fully understood.
