Serotonergic and opioidergic neurotransmitter system alterations have been observed in people with eating disorders; the genes for the serotonin 1D receptor (HTR1D) and the opioid delta receptor (OPRD1) are found on chr1p36.3–34.3, a region identified by our group in a linkage analysis of anorexia nervosa (AN). These candidate genes were evaluated for sequence variation and for linkage and association of this sequence variation to AN in family and case : control data sets. Resequencing of the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Association of Multiple DRD2 Polymorphisms with Anorexia Nervosa
TLDR
Genetically transmitted variation in D2 dopamine receptor expression mediated by functional polymorphisms affecting transcription and translation efficiency may play a role in vulnerability to AN.
Identification of novel candidate loci for anorexia nervosa at 1q41 and 11q22 in Japanese by a genome-wide association analysis with microsatellite markers
TLDR
A genome-wide case–control association study using 23 465 highly polymorphic microsatellite (MS) markers to identify genomic loci related to anorexia nervosa (AN) revealed two loci remained significantly associated with AN in the SNP-based fine mapping, indicating the success in narrowing down susceptibility regions for AN.

TLDR
The results underscore the importance of large samples to yield appropriate power to detect genotypic differences in individuals with AN and motivate complementary approaches involving Genome‐Wide Association studies, Copy Number Variation analyses, sequencing‐based rare variant discovery assays, and pathway‐based analysis in order to make up for deficiencies in traditional candidate gene approaches to AN.
Evidence of complex involvement of serotonergic genes with restrictive and binge purge subtypes of anorexia nervosa
TLDR
A substantial and complex inter-relationship between serotoninergic genes and AN is indicated and the expression or control of expression of several genes of the serotoninergic system, and interactions between these genes, could exert considerable influence over the specific symptomatology of the subtypes of AN.
Association study in eating disorders: TPH2 associates with anorexia nervosa and self‐induced vomiting
TLDR
The association of 25 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) was investigated, revealing that the tryptophan hydroxylase 2 polymorphism rs1473473 was associated with a higher risk for AN, EDs characterized by SV and for the combined group.
OPRD1 Genetic Variation and Human Disease.
TLDR
The OPRD1 gene encodes the delta-opioid receptor, which has multiple functions including regulating reward pathways, and is linked to Alzheimer's disease through an increasingly well-defined mechanism by which the variant allele reduces production of the beta-amyloid plaques associated with the disease.
The Role of Gene Polymorphisms in Susceptibility to Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa
TLDR
The 5-HT 2A receptor gene and the BDNF gene seem to be promising candidates for genetic influences on AN, since polymorphic variants of these genes have been found quite consistently, although not specifically, linked to AN-restricting subtype in large sample studies.
Genetics of Anorexia Nervosa
TLDR
The genetic architecture of AN is likely complex, representing a synergistic interaction between many genetic and environmental factors, and has shown some positive associations with AN.

Evidence for a susceptibility gene for anorexia nervosa on chromosome 1.
TLDR
A genomewide linkage analysis of 192 families with at least one affected relative pair with AN and related eating disorders, including bulimia nervosa, was performed, resulting in only modest evidence for linkage, with the highest nonparametric linkage (NPL) score observed.
Variant detection at the δ opioid receptor (OPRD1) locus and population genetics of a novel variant affecting protein sequence
TLDR
This work sequenced the OPRD1 coding region in six individuals with differing T921C alleles, and identified one novel variant in exon 1, 80T→G, which predicts a change in amino acid sequence from phenylalanine to cysteine (80G) (F27C).
Candidate gene polymorphisms in eating disorders.
Linkage analysis of anorexia nervosa incorporating behavioral covariates.
TLDR
By exploring seven attributes thought to typify individuals with eating disorders, two variables, drive-for-thinness and obsessionality, are identified, which delimit populations among the ASPs and convey substantial information for the linkage analysis.
Human δ‐opioid receptor gene and susceptibility to heroin and alcohol dependence
TLDR
The results do not support an association between genetic variation of the δ-opioid receptor and addictive behavior in man and did not find preferential transmission of the C allele from parents to affected offspring.
Association between a delta opioid receptor gene polymorphism and heroin dependence in man
TLDR
The results argue for a participation of the delta type of opioid receptors in the pathophysiology of heroin dependence.
Controlled family study of anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa: evidence of shared liability and transmission of partial syndromes.
TLDR
Both anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are familial, and the observation that familial aggregation and cross-transmission extend to milder phenotypes suggests the validity of their inclusion in a continuum of familial liability.
Anorexia nervosa and major depression: shared genetic and environmental risk factors.
TLDR
The results suggest that genetic factors significantly influence the risk for anorexia nervosa and substantially contribute to the observed comorbidity between anorexic and major depression.
Serotonin activity in anorexia nervosa after long-term weight restoration: response to D-fenfluramine challenge.
TLDR
The results suggest that abnormalities in 5HT activity do not contribute significantly to trait status in anorexia nervosa and there was no difference between long-term weight-restored anorexics and controls in their endocrine response to D-fenfluramine.
