Linkage of the dopamine receptor D1 gene to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has a strong genetic basis, and evidence from human and animal studies suggests the dopamine receptor D1 gene, DRD1, to be a good candidate for involvement. Here, we tested for linkage of DRD1 to ADHD by examining the inheritance of four biallelic DRD1 polymorphisms [D1P.5 (–1251HaeIII), D1P.6 (−800HaeIII), D1… CONTINUE READING
