As a help of the mechanism elucidation of alcoholism, we studied the relationship between glycogen synthase kinase 3-beta (GSK3B) -50T/C and -1727A/T polymorphisms, which are reported to relate to bipolar disorder. We genotyped the two polymorphisms in GSK3B gene using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in 71 health controls and 47 alcoholics. In this study, there was no significant difference in the frequency of GSK3B -50T/C and -1727A/T polymorphisms between alcoholics and controls. We suggested that there was no significant association of GSK3B -50T/C and -1727A/T polymorphisms with alcoholism.
