Glucocorticoid-regulated human serotonin transporter (5-HTT) expression is modulated by the 5-HTT gene-promotor-linked polymorphic region.

Abstract

Mood, emotion and cognition are modulated by serotonergic neurotransmission, while the physiological function of serotonergic synapses depends on serotonin reuptake, which is mediated by the serotonin transporter (5-HTT). Allelic variation of 5-HTT expression in humans is caused by a functional gene-promoter polymorphism with two predominant variant alleles… (More)
