Transporter gene is gene that allows entry of drugs to enter cells and in some cases, it also acts to keep them out. Transporter genes may account for discrepancies in the way drugs such as antidepressants, anticonvulsants and chemotherapy agents work in different people these are also known as a drug-transporter gene.Example for transporter gene is the serotonin transporter gene which has received the most attention in relation to depression, either alone or in conjunction with exposure to stressful life events (i.e. a gene x environment interaction), whereas neuroimaging studies have suggested an association with amygdala activation. There is also some evidence that this gene may predict antidepressant response.
