A human vesicular monoamine transporter cDNA has been identified by screening a human brainstem library using sequences from the rat brain synaptic vesicle monoamine transporter (SVMT) [(1992) Cell 70, 539‐551; (1992) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 89, 10993‐10997]. The hSVMT shares 92% amino acid identity with the rat sequence, but displays one less consensus site for asparagine N‐linked glycosylation and one more consensus site for phosphorylation by protein kinase C. The human SVMT gene maps to… Expand
Murine vesicular monoamine transporter 2: molecular cloning and genomic structure.
TLDR
Identification of genomic sequences facilitates construction of homologous recombinant mice, provides a template for gene structures in the vesicular transporter family, and identifies sequences elements that could contribute to the specific patterns of regulated VMAT2 expression in monoaminergic neurons. Expand
The molecular cloning and expression of a human synaptic vesicle amine transporter that suppresses MPP+ toxicity.
TLDR
In situ hybridization studies using hSVAT specific antisense oligonucleotides showed a strong hybridization signal concentrated over the cells of the substantia nigra pars compacta, conferring resistance to MPP+ the toxic metabolite of MPTP and cells containing it accumulated dopamine. Expand
Chromosomal localization of the human vesicular amine transporter genes.
TLDR
To determine whether an alteration in the genes that encode vesicular amine transport contributes to the inherited component of these disorders, a human cDNA for the brain transporter is isolated and the human vesicle amine transporter genes are localized. Expand
Synaptic vesicular monoamine transporter expression: distribution and pharmacologic profile.
TLDR
In situ hybridization documents significant SVMT expression in human nigra compacta neurons and in rat hypothalamic neurons whose distribution patterns are identical to those previously reported to display histaminergic markers and indicate likely physiological roles for SVMT in packaging monoamine transmitters including histamine. Expand
Extensive sequence divergence between the human and rat brain vesicular monoamine transporter: Possible molecular basis for species differences in the susceptibility to MPP+
TLDR
These findings indicate one possible molecular basis for the substantial species differences in the suceptibility to MPP+ demonstrated among humans, non-human primates, and rodents and are likely to facilitate molecular pharmacologic and genetic investigations of the human VMT in neurodegenerative disorders. Expand
Functional Identification and Molecular Cloning of a Human Brain Vesicle Monoamine Transporter
TLDR
The virtually identical transport characteristics of rvMATI and hvMAT1 confirm the relevance of neuropharmacological studies of rat brain biogenic amine uptake and storage to human brain neurochemistry. Expand
Cloning and functional expression of a tetrabenazine sensitive vesicular monoamine transporter from bovine chromaffin granules
TLDR
A clear species variation in which structure and function of the bovine adrenal transporter resemble the rat brain protein, while its tissue distribution is distinct from both types of rat proteins. Expand
Exon/intron boundaries, novel polymorphisms, and association analysis with schizophrenia of the human synaptic vesicle monoamine transporter (SVMT) gene
TLDR
There is no common polymorphism in the SVMT gene affecting the primary structure of the human SVMT protein, and no evidence for the major effect of the novel polymorphisms on susceptibility to schizophrenia is obtained. Expand
Expression and regulation of the bovine vesicular monoamine transporter gene
TLDR
In bovine chromaffin cells, long‐term depolarization by KC1 resulted in an increase in the level of bVMAT2 mRNA, in agreement with the previously observed increased in the transporter binding sites, suggesting that a coupling between stimulation, secretion and synthesis changes the composition of the secretory granule membrane. Expand
Expression and regulation of a vesicular monoamine transporter in rat stomach: a putative histamine transporter.
TLDR
The results are consistent with a role for VMAT2 in the transport of histamine into enterochromaffin‐like cell secretory vesicles, and with upregulation of the transporter to accommodate the increased histamine biosynthesis and secretion that accompanies achlorhydria. Expand

A cDNA that suppresses MPP+ toxicity encodes a vesicular amine transporter
TLDR
Taking advantage of selection in MPP+, gene transfer followed by plasmid rescue is used to identify a cDNA clone that encodes a vesicular amine transporter that predicts a novel mammalian protein with 12 transmembrane domains and homology to a class of bacterial drug resistance transporters. Expand
Expression cloning of a cocaine-and antidepressant-sensitive human noradrenaline transporter
TLDR
A complementary DNA clone encoding a human noradrenaline transporter is isolated and the predicted protein sequence demonstrates significant amino-acid identity with the Na+/γ-aminobutyric acid transporter, thus identifying a new gene family for neurotransmitter transporter proteins. Expand
Expression cloning of a reserpine-sensitive vesicular monoamine transporter.

Direct comparison of serotonin uptake indicated that serotonin was the preferred substrate, and the characteristics of [3H]serotonin accumulation by CV-1 cells expressing the cDNA clone suggested sequestration by an intracellular compartment. Expand

A complementary DNA clone for a serotonin (5HT) transporter has been isolated from rat basophilic leukemia cells and predicts a 653-amino acid protein with 12 to 13 putative transmembrane domains. Expand

A complementary DNA encoding a rat dopamine transporter has been isolated that exhibits high sequence similarity with the previously cloned norepinephrine and gamma-aminobutyric acid transporters, confirming the cocaine sensitivity of this transporter. Expand

TLDR
D dopamine loaded into the CHO transformant shows a localized distribution that is distinct from the pattern observed in wild-type cells and is also reversed by reserpine, suggesting that a transport activity protects against this form of toxicity, perhaps by sequestering the toxin within an intracellular compartment.

The results constitute new evidence supporting vesicle exocytosis as the source of evoked acetylcholine release by nerve terminals, and AH5183 appears to be the prototype for a new family of anticholinergics. Expand
Conserved aspartic acid residues 79 and 113 of the beta-adrenergic receptor have different roles in receptor function.
TLDR
The sequence similarity among the family of G-protein-linked receptors suggests that the presence of an Asp residue at the analogous position of one of these receptors is predictive of the ability of the receptor to bind amines as ligands. Expand
