Description:

Evidence for preferential transmission of the valine (G) allele of BDNF was found in a family-based sample of 341 white UK or Irish ADHD (Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) probands and their parents (odds ratio, OR=1.6, P1/40.02). A strong paternal effect was detected (paternal transmissions: OR=3.2, P=0.0005; maternal transmissions: OR=1.00; P=1.00) (Kent L et al, 2005).
