Research Article Summaries

We currently do not have any article summaries for SLC6A1, but we add resources to our website as they become available.


The information available about SLC6A1 is limited, and families and doctors share a critical need for more information. As we learn more from children who have this gene change, we expect our list of resources and information to grow.

You can also visit the Simons Foundation ’s SFARI Gene website to see information for researchers about this gene.
