The effect of life stress on depression is moderated by a repeat length variation in the transcriptional control region of the serotonin transporter gene, which renders carriers of the short variant vulnerable for depression.
Among their topics are the serotonin transporter gene and its implications for studying complex disease and traits, neurobiological mechanisms supporting gene-environment interaction effects, marital dynamics and child proaction, promoting resilience in maltreated children, shaping society through social policy, and some lessons from eugenics and the race-intelligence debates for gene-environment studies in the era of full-genome sequencing.
McInnes and colleagues sought to assess the functional effects of anti-TNF-alpha therapy on the brains of depressed patients with RA, and determined that TNF-alpha blockade mediates altered serotonin transporter availability and induces an improvement in depression measures.
Some areas examined include selective serotonin agonists for the acute management of migraine, dual inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase and serotonin transporter targeting potential agents for Alzheimer's disease, and applying control system modeling to understand how genetic variation influences serotonin function and behavior.
