FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a dopamine transporter which is a member of the sodium- and chloride-dependent neurotransmitter transporter family. The 3' UTR of this gene contains a 40 bp tandem repeat, referred to as a variable number tandem repeat or VNTR, which can be present in 3 to 11 copies. Variation in the number of repeats is associated with idiopathic epilepsy, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dependence on alcohol and cocaine, susceptibility to Parkinson disease and protection against nicotine dependence.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for targeted null mutations exhibit dwarfism, hyperactivity (especially in a novel environment), 5-fold higher extracellular dopamine levels, impaired spatial cognitive function, anterior pituitary hypoplasia, and failure to lactate. [provided by MGI curators]
