This study examined the relationship between a MnSOD gene (MnSOD) polymorphism (Ala-9Val) and mood disorders such as major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar I disorder (BD). Eighty patients with BD, 61 patients with MDD and 106 healthy controls were enrolled in this study and genotyped using a polymerase chain reaction-based method. The patients with MDD and BD, and the controls had a similar distribution of the genotypes and alleles in the Ala-9Val MnSOD polymorphism. The combined analysis… CONTINUE READING
