Prodynorphin allelic distribution in Scandinavian chronic alcoholics

Alcoholism, Clinical and Experimental Research
T GeijerL Terenius


Two regions of the human prodynorphin gene, the exon 4-region coding for the opioid peptides and the putative promotor/exon 1-region were analyzed for possible presence of polymorphisms. No polymorphism was detected in the exon 4-region, whereas a GC/AT base-pair exchange was observed 301 base pairs upstream of the exon 1/intron A boundary. This polymorphic marker was examined in Scandinavian chronic alcoholics (n = 70) and control subjects (n = 55). Prodynorphin allelic distributions were not significantly different in alcoholic patients and control subjects. The results suggest that no major influence on alcoholism is exerted through genes associated with this prodynorphin allelic marker.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults. Here is the latest research on separation anxiety.

KIF1A Associated Neurological Disorder

KIF1A associated neurological disorder (KAND) is a rare neurodegenerative condition caused by mutations in the KIF1A gene. KAND may present with a wide range and severity of symptoms including stiff or weak leg muscles, low muscle tone, a lack of muscle coordination and balance, and intellectual disability. Find the latest research on KAND here.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity
