Sport physiology, dopamine and nitric oxide - Some speculations and hypothesis generation.
Chaniá, Greece. In Med Hypotheses, Dec 2015
Polymorphisms affecting dopamine (especially DRD2/ANKK1-Taq1a which leads to lower density of dopamine D2 receptors in the striatum, leading to increased striatal dopamine synthesis) and COMT val 158 met (which prolongs the action of dopamine in the cortex) feature both in the time interval estimation and the executive skills literatures.
Post-Traumatic Brain Injury: Genetic Susceptibility to Outcome.
Toronto, Canada. In Neuroscientist, Aug 2015
To provide health care workers with the basic information for clinical management we summarize and compare the data on post-TBI outcome with regard to the impact of genetic variation: apolipoprotein E (APOE), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), calcium channel, voltage dependent P/Q type, catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), dopamine receptor D2 and ankyrin repeat and kinase domain containing 1 (DRD2 and ANKK1), interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-6 (IL-6), kidney and brain expressed protein (KIBRA), neurofilament, heavy polypeptide (NEFH), endothelial nitric oxide synthase 3 (NOS3), poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1), protein phosphatase 3, catalytic subunit, gamma isozyme (PPP3CC), the serotonin transporter (5-HTT) gene solute carrier family 6 member (SLC6A4) and tumor protein 53 (TP53).
[A genetic view of addiction].
Paris, France. In Med Sci (paris), Apr 2015
Finally, DRD2 and ANKK1 genes, involved in the dopaminergic pathway, and which were initially associated with AD, are now considered to be involved in a broader phenotype (addiction to psychoactive substances) including opiates.
[ANKK1 gene in psychiatry].
Laizhou, China. In Psychiatr Pol, 2011
It seems accurate to search for associations of polymorphisms in ANKK1 gene with dopaminergic system disorders.
