OBJECTIVE To determine genetic variability within the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor 2A sub-unit (GRIN2A) gene promoter and its association with concussion recovery time. The hypothesis tested was that there would be a difference in allele and/or genotype distribution between two groups of athletes with normal and prolonged recovery. METHODS DNA was extracted from saliva collected from a total of 87 athletes with a physician-diagnosed concussion. The (GT) variable number tandem repeats (VNTR… CONTINUE READING
