PTSD (Logue, 2012)

STUDY TITLE: A genome-wide association study of posttraumatic stress disorder identifies the retinoid-related orphan receptor alpha (RORA) gene as a significant risk locus

SUMMARY: Variants in the RORA gene are linked to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

DESCRIPTION:  Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is defined by disturbances in cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning that occurs in response to a traumatic event. To identify genetic variants significantly associated with PTSD, this study examined the genetic data of 761 Caucasian and African-American veterans. The most significant variant that they found was in the RORA gene, which has been identified in other studies as having a role in behavior-relevant processes and psychiatric disorders. In addition, RORA plays a role in regulation of circadian rhythm, hormones, and brain development. Most importantly, the RORA gene may function in neuroprotection – preserving neurons’ structure and function.

DID YOU KNOW? Learning to cope with PTSD is a different process for every person. However, there may be some general tips that can help you deal with this disorder. Helping others in need, exercising, having a support group, eating a healthy diet, and getting professional help may lessen the symptoms of PTSD. [SOURCE]
