Genetic association studies of obesity in Africa: a systematic review.
Cape Town, South Africa. In Obes Rev, Mar 2015
Polymorphisms in genes such as ACE, ADIPOQ, ADRB2, AGRP, AR, CAPN10, CD36, C7orf31, DRD4, FTO, MC3R, MC4R, SGIP1 and LEP were found to be associated with various measures of obesity.
Pharmacogenetics and antipsychotic treatment response.
Скопје, Macedonia. In Prilozi, 2014
It highlights the most important findings about the impact of functional polymorphisms in genes coding the CYP450 metabolizing enzymes, ABCB1 transporter gene, dopaminergic and serotonergic drug targets (DRD2, DRD3, DRD4, 5-HT1, 5HT-2A, 5HT-2C, 5HT6) as well as genes responsible for metabolism of neurotransmitters and G signalling pathways (5-HTTLPR, BDNF, COMT, RGS4) and points their role as potential biomarkers in everyday clinical practice.
Aggression, digit ratio, and variation in the androgen receptor, serotonin transporter, and dopamine D4 receptor genes in African foragers: the Hadza.
Moscow, Russia. In Behav Genet, 2012
This is first study on variation in aggression, digit ratio (ratio between the second and fourth digits, 2D:4D), directional asymmetry in 2D:4D (D(R-L)) and polymorphisms of the AR, DRD4, and 5-HTTL genes in simple hunter-gatherers, the Hadza of Tanzania
Systematic meta-analyses and field synopsis of genetic association studies in schizophrenia: the SzGene database.
United States. In Nat Genet, 2008
Across 118 meta-analyses, a total of 24 genetic variants in 16 different genes (APOE, COMT, DAO, DRD1, DRD2, DRD4, DTNBP1, GABRB2, GRIN2B, HP, IL1B, MTHFR, PLXNA2, SLC6A4, TP53 and TPH1) showed nominally significant effects with average summary odds ratios of approximately 1.23.
