Genetic factors play an important role in the aetiology of bipolar affective disorder (BP). So far, results of linkage studies have been largely disappointing. We have searched for a possible association between polymorphic DNA markers of two candidate genes (tyrosine hydroxylase, TH; dopamine D2 receptor gene, DRD2) and BP in a population from central(More)
We have carried out an association study between a dinucleotide repeat polymorphism in GABRA3 gene and manic-depressive illness in a Spanish population. This may be an important candidate gene for bipolar affective disorders since it is located in the Xq28 region, previously implicated in linkage studies. In addition, severe GABergic alterations have been(More)
We have carried out an association study of a polymorphism in the 3'UTR of the dopamine transporter gene (DAT) and a polymorphism in the coding region of the D3 receptor gene (DRD3) in Spanish patients with manic depression and in controls. No significant differences in allelic and genotypic frequencies of either of these polymorphisms was found in patients(More)
