Related to the discussion about quantitative GWAS and QTL, this primer review (and in particular box 1) is helpful in clarifying the (non) difference between the two types of studies:

The statistics behind quantitative GWAS and QTL studies is the same, the only main difference might be the multiple testing correction procedure.
In general, it’s more a nomenclature distinction, as the term “QTL” is often used specifically for molecular traits.

SLC6A4 Gene – GeneCards | SC6A4 Protein | SC6A4 Antibody

This gene encodes an integral membrane protein that transports the neurotransmitter serotonin from synaptic spaces into presynaptic neurons. The encoded protein terminates the action of serotonin and recycles it in a sodium-dependent manner. This protein is a target of psychomotor stimulants, such as amphetamines and cocaine, and is a member of the sodium:neurotransmitter symporter family. A repeat length polymorphism in the promoter of this gene has been shown to affect the rate of serotonin uptake. There have been conflicting results in the literature about the possible effect, if any, that this polymorphism may play in behavior and depression. [provided by RefSeq, May 2019]
