Abstract
POLYMORPHISMS in the serotonin transporter gene (5HTT) have been reported to be associated with neuroticism (emotionality) and with depression. A recent report of an association between 5HTT and neuroticism involved unselected samples and self-report questionnaires.(1) We attempted to extend these findings using a selected extremes design and peer ratings. From a sample of 2085 individuals, each assessed on neuroticism by two independent peers, we selected 52 individuals from the top 5% and 54 individuals from the bottom 5%. No association was found for either a functional 44 bp insertion/deletion polymorphism in 5HTT regulatory sequence (5HTTLPR) or for a non-functional variable number tandem repeat 5HTT polymorphism.
