Unipolar depression and alcoholism were tested for genetic linkage to esterase-D at 13q14.1. Tight linkage to esterase-D was ruled out for three phenotypes using three models of penetrance: (1) unipolar depression and alcoholism taken together as affected, (2) unipolar depression alone as affected with alcoholism considered unaffected and (3) alcoholism(More)
