  • BACKGROUND Linkage and association studies of alcoholism using DNA makers have been conducted without conclusive results. The comorbidity of alcoholism with affective disorder indicates that dysfunction of the serotonergic system may play an important role in developing alcoholism. METHODS We studied the genetic association between alcoholism and alleles of the HTR1A, HTR2A, and HTR2C genes. The subjects were 91 biologically unrelated alcoholics and 90 controls. Polymorphisms of these genes… CONTINUE READING
