Tryptophan hydroxylase-2 (TPH2) is a newly identified second form of TPH responsible for serotonin synthesis in the brain and has been increasingly implicated as a contributor to the etiology of various psychiatric disorders. In this study, we have identified the constellation of polymorphisms in rhesus monkey TPH2 and investigated genotype/phenotype(More)
