Description:

Parent-of-origin effects were observed in sib-pair analysis of 105 families with recurrent alcoholism. The study revealed an increased sharing of the marker D8S1715 in affected siblings (P <= 0.0001 for ALDX1 and ALDX3 and P = 0.0006 for ALDX2 class alcoholism) only when the allele was transmitted maternally (Wyszynski DF et al, 1999).
