BACKGROUND Several studies in animal models suggest a possible effect of the specific part of the Y-chromosome (Y(NPAR)) on brain opioid, and more specifically on brain β-endorphin (BE). In humans, male prevalence is found in autistic disorder in which observation of abnormal peripheral or central BE levels are also reported. This suggests gender differences in BE associated with genetic factors and more precisely with Y(NPAR). METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Brain BE levels and plasma… CONTINUE READING
