From NCBI Gene:

The amino acid glycine acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. The protein encoded by this gene is one of two transporters that stop glycine signaling by removing it from the synaptic cleft. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2016]

From UniProt:

Terminates the action of glycine by its high affinity sodium-dependent reuptake into presynaptic terminals. May play a role in regulation of glycine levels in NMDA receptor-mediated neurotransmission.
