There are well-established abnormalities of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and beta 2 adrenergic receptor function in affective disorders. The genes for the glucocorticoid receptor (GRL) and the beta 2 adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) have been cloned and mapped to distal chromosome 5q. In this study, we have examined polymorphisms of these two(More)
Chromosome 11 is a region of great interest in the search for genes for bipolar disorder. Although an initial report of linkage to 11p15 was not replicated in numerous subsequent studies, the remainder of the chromosome contains a variety of interesting candidate genes and regions. These include the D2 dopamine receptor and the site of a chromosomal(More)
