In genetics, rs5569 (A1287G or G1287A) is a genetic variant. It is a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the SLC6A2 gene in exon 9. This gene codes the norepinephrine transporter. The SNP is a silent substitution and the nucleotides of both variants code a threonine amino acid.[1]

Several research studies have examined the effect of the variant in relation to alcohol dependence,[2][3] attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,[4] diabetes,[5] major depressive disorder,[6][7] panic disorder,[8] Tourette syndrome[9] and personality traits.[10] None of the studies have found an association.
