Association between the 120-bp duplication of the dopamine D4 receptor gene and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: genetic and molecular analyses.

Abstract

Abnormalities of the dopamine neurotransmission have been hypothesized to play an important role in the pathophysiology of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Promoter variants of the dopamine D4 receptor gene (DRD4) have attracted particular interest due to their possible role in regulation of gene transcription. Here we describe the haplotype… (More)
