Because of promising data from animal studies the clinical trials on anticonvulsants for the treatment of alcohol disorder have been accumulating in the last 40 years. A comprehensive research of various data bases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane) was performed. Here, we present the trials found together with an estimation of their evidence according to the(More)
CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing has emerged as a powerful tool to create mutant alleles in model organisms. However, the precision with which these mutations are created has introduced a new set of complications for genotyping and colony management. Traditional gene-targeting approaches in many experimental organisms incorporated exogenous DNA and/or allele(More)
Several lines of evidence suggest an involvement of the noradrenergic neurotransmitter system in the pathogenesis of bipolar affective disorder (BPAD). Three genes for alpha-adrenergic receptors (ADRA) are located in chromosomal regions that showed evidence for linkage: The alpha(1c)-adrenergic (ADRA-1C) receptor gene on 8p21, the alpha(2a)-adrenergic(More)
