Štefulj, Jasminka and Mokrović, Gordana and Hranilović, Dubravka and Bordukalo-Nikšić, Tatjana and Bakula, Mirko and Kubat, Milovan and Jernej, Branimir (2010) Functional promoter polymorphism of the neuronal isoform of tryptophan hydroxylase (Tph2) in suicide. Psychiatry Research, [Epub . ISSN 0165-1781
The association between suicide and G-703T polymorphism of the tryptophan hydroxylase 2 (TPH2), the rate-limiting enzyme in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin, was studied in a sample of 291 suicide victims and 280 healthy subjects of Croatian origin. No significant differences were found between the groups. Obtained results do not support involvement of the investigated polymorphism in the susceptibility to suicide completion.
