Serotonin transporter (SLC6A4) polymorphisms are variously implicated in mediating susceptibility to attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a highly heritable and heterogeneous disorder with onset in childhood. Since there has been no survey in this regard from India, a sample of 56 ADHD cases and 174 healthy individuals from Kolkata were(More)
Serotonin transporter (5-HTT) is a transmembrane protein belonging to Na+/Cl- dependent membrane transporter family and transports 5-HT across the membranes of presynaptic neurons. 5-HTT-linked polymorphic region (5-HTTLPR) gained much interest because of the differential regulation of expression and activity of 5-HTT by its various genotypes. A(More)
Synaptosomal-associated protein 25 (SNAP25) is an essential component for synaptic vesicle mediated release of neurotransmitters. Deficiencies or abnormal structure or function of SNAP25 protein, possibly arising through genetic variations in the relevant DNA code, has been suggested to play role in the pathology of several neurobehavioural disorders(More)
Autism spectrum disorders are heritable and behaviorally-defined neurodevelopmental disorders having skewed sex ratio. Serotonin as modulator of behavior and implication of serotonergic dysfunction in ASD etiology corroborates that serotonergic system genes are potential candidates for autism susceptibility. In the current study X-chromosomal gene, MAOA(More)
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder with early manifestation. It is a multifactorial disorder and several susceptible chromosomal regions for autism are identified through genome scan studies. The gene coding for glutamate receptor 6 (GluR6 or GRIK2) has been suggested as a candidate gene for autism based on its localization in the autism specific(More)
Involvement of reelin with Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has been implicated through several biochemical as well as genetic studies. Reelin is an extracellular signaling protein, which plays a significant role in cytoarchitectonic pattern formation of different brain areas during development. Reelin gene (RELN) is located on chromosome 7q22; an important(More)
Several studies suggest involvement of serotoninergic system in the pathophysiology of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The 5-HT receptor binding studies using (3)H-lysergic acid diethylamide ((3)H-LSD) and linkage analysis provided evidences to consider HTR2A as a potential candidate gene for ASD. The three SNPs, -1438A/G (rs6311), 102T/C (rs6313) and(More)
Associations between attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and genetic polymorphisms in the dopamine receptors, transporter and metabolizing enzymes have been reported in different ethnic groups. Gene variants may affect disease outcome by acting synergistically or antagonistically and thus their combined effect becomes an important aspect to(More)
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder with high heritability factor and the reelin gene, which codes for an extracellular matrix protein involved with neuronal migration and lamination is being investigated as a positional and functional candidate gene for autism. It is located on chromosome 7q22 within the autism susceptible locus (AUTS1); identified in(More)
Optimization of the similarity measure is an essential theme in medical image registration. In this paper, a novel continuous medical image registration approach (CMIR) is proposed. This is our extension work of the previous one where we did a segmentation part of any particular image with a custom algorithm .The CMIR, considering the feedback from users(More)
