Gene: SLC6A3 (solute carrier family 6 member 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC6A3
Name: solute carrier family 6 member 3
Description: Exhibits dopamine:sodium symporter activity. Involved in dopamine uptake. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell surface; flotillin complex; and neuronal cell body. Implicated in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; nicotine dependence; and obesity.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DA transporter; DAT; DAT1; dopamine transporter 1; PKDYS; PKDYS1; sodium-dependent dopamine transporter; solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter), member 3; solute carrier family 6 (neurotransmitter transporter, dopamine), member 3; solute carrier family 6, member 3
