Lack of association between suicide attempt and a polymorphism at the dopamine receptor D4 locus.

Abstract

Dopaminergic neurotransmission has been implicated in suicidal behaviour. The 48 bp-repeat polymorphism in the gene coding for dopamine receptor D4 was investigated in a sample of suicide attempters (n = 165) and healthy control subjects (n = 99). No association between suicide attempts and this polymorphism was observed. Neither did any significant… (More)
