Association of restriction fragment-length polymorphisms in the alcohol dehydrogenase 2 gene with alcoholic brain atrophy.


Alcohol abuse can induce brain atrophy, but it only occurs in some alcoholics. To investigate whether genetic polymorphism of alcohol-metabolizing enzymes [including alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH)] was related to alcoholic brain atrophy, we determined restriction fragment-length polymorphisms of the ADH2 and ALDH2 genes in 77… (More)
