165] Their team also genotyped 384 SNPs within 45 candidate genes related to nicotine dependence in a Han Chinese sample by employing the Golden Gate genotyping assay, and confirmed the previous findings that DRD2, DRD3, DDC, CHRNB3, GABBR2 and CHRNA4 genetic variants were associated with nicotine dependence.
The actual mutation is on the CHRNA4 gene that changes the genetic make-up for the Alpha 4 subunit on the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.
