Gene information for SLC6A3 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID6531
Official gene symbolSLC6A3
Full namesolute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, dopamine), member 3
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a dopamine transporter which is a member of the sodium- and chloride-dependent neurotransmitter transporter family. The 3' UTR of this gene contains a 40 bp tandem repeat, referred to as a variable number tandem repeat or VNTR, which can be present in 3 to 11 copies. Variation in the number of repeats is associated with idiopathic epilepsy, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dependence on alcohol and cocaine, susceptibility to Parkinson disease and protection against nicotine dependence.
