The dopamine (DAT) and serotonin (SERT) transporter genes both contain variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) in non-coding gene regions which have been correlated with a predisposition to a variety of CNS disorders. There is considerable homology between individual DAT and SERT repeat DNA sequences, which is reflected in their ability to compete with(More)
The expression of neuropeptides is largely tissue-specific and under strictly regulated and complex control. In view of the diversity of neuronal phenotypes, with concomitant plasticity of gene expression within any phenotype, it is obvious that there is coordinated activation and repression of genes. One of the central observations from these studies is(More)
