NCBI Description of SLC6A3

This 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. Sequence Note: Variation in the number of 40 bp repeats in the 3' UTR of this gene has been reported with a normal range of 3 to 11 repeats. The Reference Sequence contains 10 copies of these repeats.
