The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between SNPs in the clock gene and adult attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The study included 143 German men aged 31.3 ± 11.7 (mean ± standard deviation), who were genotyped for SNPs via blood samples and ADHD status was assessed by self report followed by the Wender–Reimherr diagnostic interview.
A SNP in the clock gene (rs1801260) was found to be associated with ADHD by non-parametric analysis of covariance, adjusting for age, presence of personality disorders and multiple comparisons. Compared to those homozygous for the C/C alleles, those homozygous for the T/T allele had higher scores on measures of ADHD.
