The DRD4 gene encoding the dopamine receptor protein.

The DRD4 gene encoding the dopamine receptor protein, the control of the synthesis and release of dopamine and the firing rate of neurons helps. The DAT gene encoding the dopamine transporter protein, the dopamine removes from the brain synapses.

‘says Tanya Froehlich MD, principal investigator of the study and a physician at the Department of Developmental Psychology and Behavioral Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. – ‘With more information about genes that may be involved in ADHD medication response, we may be able treatment treatment course, our approach to to fit to each child, and improve symptom response while reducing health care costs,’she added added.. Researchers report their findings in the journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry 89 children with ADHD tested aged 7 to 11 They found that children. With certain variants of the dopamine transporter and dopamine receptor D4 gene greater improvement in hyperactivity and impulsivity showed after taking methylphenidate compared with children with alternative DAT and DRD4 versions ‘Doctors do not have to predict whoever whoever vast improvement in ADHD symptoms with a particular medication, so currently we use a trial-and-error method, unfortunately, as a consequence, the search for an effective treatment long before.Serafianos of the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medical Stephen Hughes and Paul Boyer the the National Cancer Institute Frederick, The Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine Hat be for a joint center of Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
