We examined the association between gene polymorphisms related to central dopaminergic transmission and alcoholism in the Japanese population. Polymorphic gene loci examined included those encoding the dopamine D2 receptor (NcoI site and Ser-Cys site), the dopamine D3 receptor (BalI site), the dopamine D4 receptor (48 bp tandem repeat) and the dopamine… CONTINUE READING
