Vesicular neurotransmitter transporters sequester the transmitters into synaptic vesicles (Erickson et al., 1996). The vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) is responsible for catecholamine and serotonin storage in central synapses. Antibodies specific for VMAT have been used to monitor expression of the transporter during development and in aging and can be effectively used as a marker for monoamine terminals (Haycock et al., 2003; Witkovsky et al., 2005).
