[Polymorphism of the serotonin system genes in some Finno-Ugric populations].

[Article in Russian]


Polymorphic sites in the genes encoding monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A), serotonin transporter (hSERT) and 5-HT2A receptor were typed in Khant and Komi ethnic groups with the purpose of revealing possible interpopulation differences in genotype and allele frequencies. No statistically significant differences in the hSERT and 5-HT2A gene frequencies were detected. At the same time, the populations examined had statistically significantly different MAO-A genotype and allele frequencies. These results obtained indicate the prevalence of the site gain alleles of the EcoRV and Fnu4HI RFLP loci at the MAO-A gene in Komis and the of the corresponding site loss alleles in Khants.
