The contribution of rare and common variants in 30 genes to risk nicotine dependence.
Charlottesville, United States. In Mol Psychiatry, Nov 2015
Rare variants in NRXN1, CHRNA9, CHRNA2, NTRK2, GABBR2, GRIN3A, DNM1, NRXN2, NRXN3 and ARRB2 were significantly associated with smoking status in the MSTCC AA sample, with weighted sum statistic (WSS) P-values ranging from 2.42 × 10(-3) to 1.31 × 10(-4) after 10(6) phenotype rearrangements.
Effect of genetic variation in the nicotinic receptor genes on risk for posttraumatic stress disorder.
Durham, United States. In Psychiatry Res, Oct 2015
The present study examined the association between genetic variation in the nicotinic receptor gene family (CHRNA2, CHRNA3, CHRNA4, CHRNA5, CHRNA6, CHRNA7, CHRNA9, CHRNA10, CHRNB2, CHRNB3, CHRNB4) and the occurrence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Why do young women smoke? V. Role of direct and interactive effects of nicotinic cholinergic receptor gene variation on neurocognitive function.
Jerusalem, Israel. In Genes Brain Behav, 2008
Response inhibition (MFFT, Stroop, CPT Loading Phase, TOL) was associated with variants in CHRNA2, CHRNA4, CHRNA5, CHRNA7, CHRNA9, CHRNA10, CHRNB2 and CHRNB3.
Transgenic and gene targeting studies of hair cell function in mouse inner ear.
Memphis, United States. In J Neurobiol, 2002
Targeted inactivation using embryonic stem cell technology and transgenic expression studies have revealed the roles of several genes involved in hair cell lineage (Math1), differentiation (Pou4f3), mechanotransduction (Myo1c, and Myo7a), electromotility (Prestin), and efferent modulation (Chrna9, encoding alpha9 AChR).
