Abstract

The association between the two genetic markers of affective disorders, ABO blood group system and platelet MAO (monoamine oxidase) activity was studied in 70 healthy young males. The platelet MAO activity of subjects with blood type O was significantly lower than that of subjects with blood type A and with blood types A+AB+B together. This finding could constitute a 'bridge' between the two genetic approaches to affective disorders.
