Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SYNGR3 Gene
This gene encodes an integral membrane protein. The exact function of this protein is unclear, but studies of a similar murine protein suggest that it is a synaptic vesicle protein that also interacts with the dopamine transporter. The gene product belongs to the synaptogyrin gene family. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SYNGR3 Gene
Involved in the positive regulation of dopamine transporter activity. Probably facilitates the physical and functional interactions of the transporter with the dopamine vesicular storage system, allowing a more efficient loading of the vesicles with extracellular dopamine after release (By similarity).
