TAAR1 trace amine associated receptor 1

Gene ID: 134864, updated on 17-Oct-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: TA1; TAR1; TRAR1

Summary

The protein encoded by this gene is a G-protein coupled receptor activated by trace amines. The encoded protein responds little or not at all to dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine, or histamine, but responds well to beta-phenylethylamine, p-tyramine, octopamine, and tryptamine. While primarily functioning in neurologic systems, there is evidence that this gene is involved in blood cell and immunologic functions as well. This gene is thought to be intronless.
