Mol Psychiatry 4:463-6. 1999..7% vs 32.3%: chi2 = 5.19, P = 0.023). This finding replicates a recent family-based study of this polymorphism in OCD, and thus indicates that the 5-HTTLPR may be associated with susceptibility to OCD...

J Pers Disord 13:312-27. 1999..These results suggest that there is no fundamental mechanistic distinction between character and temperament in regard to the serotonin transporter gene, and that a single neurotransmitter can influence multiple personality traits...
