The team also found that spouses were more likely to have the same variation in this single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), which means that alcohol co regulation may have existed before both partners cohabited. The team suggested that the rs1229984 variant may affect alcohol-related behavior, which may have an impact on partner selection.
The researchers point out that they will not extrapolate the results of this study to non European populations, and further studies are needed to investigate other alcohol-related genetic variations to determine the causal link in the reported association. (reporter Zhang mengran)
