FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes one family member of vacuolar protein sorting 10 (VPS10) domain-containing receptor proteins. The VPS10 domain name comes from the yeast carboxypeptidase Y sorting receptor Vps10 protein. Members of this gene family are large with many exons but the CDS lengths are usually less than 3700 nt. Very large introns typically separate the exons encoding the VPS10 domain; the remaining exons are separated by much smaller-sized introns. These genes are strongly expressed in the central nervous system. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous inactivation of this gene leads to reduced dopamine levels and dopamine metabolism, dopaminergic hyperinnervation of the frontal cortex, hyperactivity, abnormal behavioral response to amphetamine, and decreased induction of Schwann cell apoptosis following sciatic nerve injury.
