Literature associating SLC6A4 and substance dependence
Solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter), member 4; Serotonin transporter whose primary function in the central nervous system involves the regulation of serotonergic signaling via transport of serotonin molecules from the synaptic cleft back into the pre-synaptic terminal for re-utilization. Plays a key role in mediating regulation of the availability of serotonin to other receptors of serotonergic systems. Terminates the action of serotonin and recycles it in a sodium-dependent manner; Belongs to the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter (SNF) (TC 2.A.22) family. SLC6A4 subfamily.
Synonyms: SLC6A4, SLC6A4p, hSLC6A4, 5HTT, B3VRQ0 ...
