Quantitative genetic studies (i.e., twin and adoption studies) suggest that genetic influences contribute substantially to the development of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD. [...] Key Result Significant associations were identified for several candidate genes including DAT1, DRD4, DRD5, 5HTT, HTR1B, and SNAP25.Expand

TLDR
The results of genetic studies investigating associations between putative susceptibility genes for ADHD and neuropsychological traits relevant for this disorder were reviewed, and the most investigated genes were DRD4, DAT1, COMT, MAOA, and DBH. Expand
Molecular genetic studies of ADHD and its candidate genes: A review
TLDR
A retrospective review of more than 300 molecular genetic studies for ADHD was presented, including linkage studies, candidate-gene association studies, genome-wide association studies and genome- wide copy number variation studies, with a special focus on general patterns of study design and common sample features. Expand
The molecular genetic architecture of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
A state-of-the-art review of the molecular genetics of ADHD incorporating evidence from candidate gene and linkage designs, as well as genome-wide association studies of common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and rare copy number variations (CNVs). Expand
Molecular Genetics of Attention Deficit–Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Attention deficit–hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) comprises a common and highly heritable group of syndromes with childhood onset that are characterised by impairments in attention span, impulseExpand
Candidate genetic pathways for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) show association to hyperactive/impulsive symptoms in children with ADHD.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that pathway-based association analyses, using quantitative measurements of ADHD symptom domains, can increase the power of genetic analyses to identify biological risk factors involved in this disorder. Expand

TLDR
Understanding the biochemistry and genetics of ADHD will allow this disorder to provide a useful addition with other treatment procedures for ADHD. Expand
Case-control genome-wide association study of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
The candidate gene findings are consistent with a prior meta-analysis in suggesting that the effects of ADHD risk variants must, individually, be very small and/or include multiple rare alleles. Expand

DRD4 and DAT1 in ADHD: Functional neurobiology to pharmacogenetics
TLDR
Future strategies for genetic studies in ADHD are discussed, highlighting both the pitfalls and possible solutions relating to candidate gene studies, genome-wide studies, defining the phenotype, and statistical approaches. Expand
Fitting the pieces together: current research on the genetic basis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
TLDR
The first genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of ADHD have been completed and although larger studies are still required to detect common risk variants, novel risk pathways are being suggested for ADHD. Expand

TLDR
Several methodological issues, including measurement errors, developmental changes in cognitive abilities, sex, psychostimulant effects and presence of comorbid conditions, represent confounding factors and may explain conflicting results. Expand
Molecular Genetics of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Family, twin, and adoption studies provide compelling evidence that genes play a strong role in mediating susceptibility to ADHD, and seven genes for which the same variant has been studied in three or more case-control or family-based studies show statistically significant evidence of association with ADHD.

TLDR
This is the first time that identical alleles of NET from different studies were implicated, and thus this report provides further evidence that the NET gene is involved in the etiology of ADHD. Expand
