26295806 Higher acute vulnerability to stress exists in persons with long AVPR1A RS3 alleles and increased arginine vasopressin levels.
25968600 Study identified, in OXTR and AVPR1A genes, signatures of balancing selection in the cis-regulative acting sequences such as transcription factor binding and enhancer sequences, as well as in a transcriptional repressor sequence motif. Additionally, in the intron 3 of the OXTR gene, the SNP rs59190448 appears to be under positive directional selection.
25707602 The arginine vasopressin receptor 1A gene (AVPR1A) is known to affect social communication and has been reported to associate with autism in several studies.
25529259 AVPR1A RS3 was not associated with schizophrenia; variation in the AVPR1A gene contributes to social behavioral deficits associated with schizophrenia
25476609 examined associations between polymorphisms in OXTR and AVPR1a and individual differences in emotional and cognitive empathy 367 young adults; emotional empathy was associated solely with OXTR, whereas cognitive empathy was associated solely with AVPR1a
25438555 Haplotype analysis revealed an association of AVPR1A C*S- and C*L-haplotype (rs11174811 and RS1, respectively) and increased or decreased Extraversion (EPI) in Bashkirs, respectively.
25016245 Study found that variability in the rs7298346 marker, located in the 5'-flanking region, was related to a composite measure of executive functioning in 4-year-old children after controlling for a variety of covariates and children's theory of mind.
24924430 humanized AVPR1A mice displayed increased reciprocal social interactions compared with wild-type animals.
24849541 Gene-level tests showed that DRD2 was associated with vocabulary, ASPM with vocabulary and reading decoding, and AVPR1A with all three endophenotypes.
24660771 Men, but not women, with high levels of poststressor AVP and the 320 allele of the RS1 polymorphism reported more poststressor anger than noncarriers.
