FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the pterin-dependent aromatic acid hydroxylase family. The encoded protein catalyzes the first and rate limiting step in the biosynthesis of serotonin, an important hormone and neurotransmitter. Mutations in this gene may be associated with psychiatric diseases such as bipolar affective disorder and major depression. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]
PHENOTYPE: Mutations in this locus result in abnormal serotonin levels in the brain. Whether an increase or decrease in serotonin levels is seen depends on the specific nucleotide substitution/point mutation. [provided by MGI curators]
