This gene encodes one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) that belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Serotonin is a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter a hormone and a mitogen. Serotonin receptors mediate many of the central and peripheral physiologic functions of serotonin including regulation of cardiovascular functions and impulsive behavior. Population and family-based analyses of a minor allele (glutamine-to-stop substitution designated Q20*) which blocks expression of this protein and knockout studies in mice suggest a role for this gene in impulsivity. However other factors such as elevated testosterone levels may also be involved. [provided by RefSeq Oct 2011]
