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)
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)
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)
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)
— 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)
Renal cystic diseases are a leading cause of renal failure. Mutations associated with renal cystic diseases reside in genes encoding proteins that localize to primary cilia. These cystoproteins can disrupt ciliary structure or cilia-mediated signaling, although molecular mechanisms connecting cilia function to renal cystogenesis remain unclear. The ciliary(More)
Epilepsy is a common neurological condition characterized by unprovoked seizure attacks. Early brain developmental abnormalities involving neuronal migration and lamination are implicated in childhood epilepsy. Reelin, a neuronal-signaling molecule plays a crucial role in these migratory processes. Therefore, reelin gene (RELN), which is located on human(More)
Serotoninergic dysfunction is highly implicated in autism. Serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) that regulates synaptic serotonin level has been investigated as a candidate gene for autism, but consensus opinion on possible association is still lacking. Converging evidences of platelet-hyperserotoninemia in approximately 25% of the patients, betterment of(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.
