Genetic polymorphism of vesicular monoamine transporter 1 gene (SLC18A1) in Emirati population

Vesicular monoamine transporters (VMATs) are an important target for biological research in neuropsychiatric disorders. Recent studies indicated that VMAT1 is expressed in the brain, thus making transporter plausible candidate genes for neuropsychiatric disorders. Furthermore, several recent genetic case-control studies have documented an association between common missense variations in the VMAT1 gene and...
