genotyped sample (n = 18) we excluded these individuals from further analysis. Examination of relative MD frequencies in each homozygous genotype group showed that the less prevalent T allele (the termination allele) was associated with an increased prevalence of MD (65% relative to 48%) in both sexes. Likewise, Neuroticism score (arcsine-transformed and age-regressed) was also found to be elevated in TT homozygotes, although this difference did not reach statistical significance (f = 3.0, P… CONTINUE READING
