General description

Solute carrier family 6 member 4 (SLC6A4), also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine transporter (5-HTT), is an integral membrane protein, encoded by the gene mapped to human chromosome 17q11.2. The encoded protein is a member of SLC6 gene family and is mainly expressed in brain and blood cells.


Anti-Serotonin Transporter (N-terminal) antibody produced in rabbit has been used in western blot analysis and immunohistochemistry.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phos­phate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Solute carrier family 6 member 4 (SLC6A4) catalyzes the transport of neurotransmitter serotonin from the synaptic space into presynaptic neurons. It also plays a vital role in mood and anxiety regulation. Mutation on the gene might alter the expression of serotonin (5HT) in the synaptic cleft, which ultimately leads to schizophrenia. Allelic variations in the gene increases the risk of susceptibility to autism and rigid-compulsive behaviors.

The polymorphic promoter region of the serotonin transporter gene serotonin-transporter-linked polymorphic region (5HTTLPR), has been suggested to affect serotonin uptake and may play a role in the pathogenesis of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and aggressive behavior.
