Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Polymorphism in the serotonin transporter promoter gene has been recently reported to be associated with the personality trait known as anxiety-related traits. We have attempted to replicate these findings in 101 healthy Japanese subjects.

METHODS:

The personality traits of the subjects were assessed with the tridimensional personality questionnaire.

RESULTS:

An association was observed in the present study between individuals grouped according to the transporter gene and harm avoidance scores.

CONCLUSIONS:

These data supported that there was an association between the serotonin transporter gene and anxiety.
