Striatal dopamine transporter availability associated with polymorphisms in the dopamine transporter gene SLC6A3.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Polymorphisms in the dopamine transporter (DAT) gene SLC6A3 are associated with human striatal DAT expression, but the exact effects on DAT expression are not clear. A variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) in the 3' untranslated region of the DAT gene was previously investigated in relation to striatal DAT availability, but the results were… (More)
