Interleukin-6 gene (IL-6): a possible role in brain morphology in the healthy adult brain
Journal of Neuroinflammation, 06/14/2012
Baune BT et al. – The findings suggest a possible neuroprotective role of the G–allele of the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs1800795 on hippocampal volumes. Studies on the role of this SNP in psychiatric populations and especially in those with affected hippocampus (e.g., by maltreatment, stress) are warranted.
