Summaries for TAAR6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TAAR6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a seven-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptor that likely functions as a receptor for endogenous trace amines. Mutations in this gene may be associated with schizophrenia.[provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]

GeneCards Summary for TAAR6 Gene

TAAR6 (Trace Amine Associated Receptor 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TAAR6 include schizophrenia and cyclosporiasis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Peptide ligand-binding receptors. GO annotations related to this gene include G-protein coupled receptor activity and trace-amine receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is TAAR9.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TAAR6 Gene

  • Orphan receptor. Could be a receptor for trace amines. Trace amines are biogenic amines present in very low levels in mammalian tissues. Although some trace amines have clearly defined roles as neurotransmitters in invertebrates, the extent to which they function as true neurotransmitters in vertebrates has remained speculative. Trace amines are likely to be involved in a variety of physiological functions that have yet to be fully understood.
