26250693 Alcohol dependence-associated variation in GABRA2 is associated with differential expression of the entire cluster of GABAA subunit genes on chromosome 4p12 in neural stem cells.
26116794 The results of this study support a growing body of evidence linking GABAA receptors with the development of alcohol tolerance, dependence and withdrawal symptoms
26087834 Recent drinking history (p = 0.01), and recent drinking history x genotype interaction (p = 0.01) were significantly associated with acute adaptation of the subjective responses to alcohol for the GABRA2 SNP rs279858.
25804982 GABRA2 SNPs directly predicted adolescent alcohol problems.
25797587 A GABRA2 x Parental Monitoring effect on externalizing behavior trajectory was observed, such that A-carriers were largely unaffected by parental monitoring, whereas trajectory for those with the GG genotype was affected by parental monitoring.
25514066 GABRA2 genetic variants play a role in antipsychotic-associated weight gain.
25365806 Results suggest that the genetic effect of GABRA2 on externalizing behavior, more specifically on rule breaking is, at least in part, due to its effect on susceptibility to environmental exposure (i.e., peer delinquency)
24975023 This study demonstrates an impact of GABRA2 genotype on incentive-motivation neurocircuitry in adolescence, with implications for vulnerability to alcoholism.
24811113 GABRA2 is significantly associated with rule breaking in mid- to late adolescence, but not substance abuse symptomatology across adolescence.
24687270 the current study failed to replicate previous associations between two well replicated GABRA2 single nucleotide polymorphisms and conduct disorder and CD and alcohol dependence
