TAAR1

A gene on chromosome 6q23.2 that encodes a G protein-coupled receptor activated by trace amines. Trace amines are endogenous compounds that account for less than 1% of the biogenic amines in most brain regions, and are thought to have a role in neurotransmission.

16) Unlike the dextro isomers, L-amphetamine structures do not inhibit dopamine reuptake or cause euphoria, but can cause stimulation (eg, sleep disturbance) by inhibiting norepinephrine reuptake, and also by interacting with the trace amine-associated receptor 1 (TAAR1), an intracellular receptor expressed within the presynaptic terminal of monoamine neurons.
