Allelic variations in alcohol metabolism genes (ADH1B, ADH1C, CYP2E1) and alcohol use disorder (AUD) in northeastern Brazil

A significant protective effect against alcohol dependence was observed in individuals carrying allelic and genotypic variations of the ADH1B gene, as determined through the combined analysis of homozygous and heterozygous variant forms of the gene in controls and alcoholics.

Association study of the SLC6A3 VNTR (DAT) and DRD2/ANKK1 Taq1A polymorphisms with alcohol dependence in a population from northeastern Brazil.

Findings suggest that A9 allele and A9/A9 genotype of the SLC6A3 40 bp-VNTR are involved in the vulnerability to AD in the population studied, but for the DRD2/ANKK1 SNP does not present contributions to the development of AD.

Study of polymorphic variants of the serotonin 2A receptor gene (5-HT2A) and its possible effects on smoking habits of a population from northeastern Brazil.

Previous studies have revealed a genetic component, including genetic polymorphisms in the serotonergic pathway, particularly in the serotonin receptor gene (5-HT2A). The aim of this study was to

Case–control association analysis of Dopamine receptor polymorphisms in alcohol dependence: a pilot study in Indian males

It is shown that genetic variations in dopamine receptors D1 and D4 may influence genetic predisposition to alcoholism, and statistically significant associations of polymorphisms in DRD1 and DRD4 with alcoholism were found.
