26338179 VMAT1 and VMAT2 are expressed in the majority of neuroblastomas
25842846 SLC18A1 gene polymorphisms are associated with the risk of paranoid schizophrenia in Russians and Tatars.
23337945 The data of this study showed that VMAT1 polymorphisms influence monoamine signaling, the functional response of emotional brain circuits and risk for psychopathology.
23090274 Deletion of amino acids 307-338 in hVMAT1 isoform-b abolishes transport activity, and a 136-Thr partially reduces activity of isoform-a.
21883697 we found a significant down-regulation of the gene coding for the vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT1)in enteroendocrine cells infected with Chlamydia trachomatis

18702937 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18451639 Polymorphism in VMAT1 gene on chromosome 8p is associated with schizophrenia.
18451639 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18249496 Our findings support the hypothesis that anxiety-related personality traits are associated with variation in the VMAT1/SLC18A1 gene.

16936705 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16936705 Expression analysis confirmed that VMAT1 is expressed in human brain at the mRNA and protein level. Results suggest that variations in the VMAT1 gene may confer susceptibility to Bipolar Disorder in patients of European descent.
16326835 VMAT1Delta15 is not localized in large, dense core vesicles as the native form but in the endoplasmic reticulum. While VMAT1 can take up serotonin, VMAT1Delta15 cannot, indicating different functions for the two forms of VMAT1.
16189177 Greater expression of VMAT 1 in von Hippel-Lindau syndrome than multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2. Expression of VMAT 2 did not differ significantly.
12807698 Human bronchial arterial smooth muscle cells express OCT-1 and extraneuronal monoamine transporter(EMT). EMT is the predominant plasma membrane transporter for norepinephrine uptake.
