2. Genetic Study Of Slc6a4 Gene In Convicted Offenders From Prisons Of Punjab, Pakistan Exhibiting Antisocial Personality Disorder Traits

by Asima Saman | Dr. Saadat Ali | Dr. M. Yasir Zahoor | Dr. M. Imran.

Material type: book Book; Literary form: not fiction Publisher: 2016Dissertation note: Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) is characterized by incapacity of an individual to adapt themselves to social norms. Patients with ASPD typically have irritability problems and aggressive feelings toward other people. The serotonin transporter gene (5-HTT orSLC6A4) has been associated with regulation of serotonergic neurotransmission, mood and behaviour traits.Low levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin are believed to affect judgement, planning, and impulse control in ASPD sufferers. Genetic polymorphism in selected intronic region of serotonin transporter SLC6A4 gene was associated with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) in convicted criminal of Punjab, Pakistan. We have selected two regions from SLC6A4 gene, which was intron 1 and exon 3.After extraction of DNA Polymerase Chain Reaction was used to amplify the extracted DNA of criminals (n=20) and control (n=10) for selected segments of intron 1 and exon 3 of SLC6A4gene. Sanger’s DNA sequencing method (di-deoxy chain termination method) was used to sequence the amplified fragments. Statistical and bioinformatics tools were used to analyse the data. Intron 1 has shown 5-HTTLPR polymorphism S allele (0.85 frequencies), LA allele (0.05 frequencies) and LG allele (0.1 frequencies) and exon 3 did not show polymorphism in criminal’s sample. The study highlights the role of SLC6A4 gene polymorphism in criminals of Punjab having antisocial personality disordertraits.
