Monogenetic Eating Disorders

Molecular genetic research of eating disorders is in its infancy. However, promising areas for future research have already been identified (e.g., 5-HT2A receptor gene, UCP-2/UCP-3 gene, estrogen receptor ß gene) and several large-scale linkage and association studies are currently underway. Discover the latest research on monogenetic eating disorders here.
