Brief Summary in Lay Language

Preliminary own work and findings of our partners point to a special significance of the blood-brain barrier gene ABCB1, the stress regulation gene FKBP5 and so-called "Gliotransmitter" genes P2RX4 and P2RX7 with respect to depression risk and antidepressant treatment outcome. Genomic indicators of the activity of these genes and their epigenetic modifications are promising candidates for serving as genomic biomarkers of depression, which will be validated in this program. There are three subprojects. The subproject considered here is called CAP study aiming to validate epigenetic biomarkers in regard to the risk of developing depression. A case/control study with 100 adolescents will be carried out, half of them suffering from depression (cases), while the other half will be negative for psychiatric disorders (controls). Saliva samples will be collected from both groups to obtain DNA. In addition, chemical modifications of the DNA (so-called epigenetic modifications) will be measured, which, unlike DNA, can be affected by environmental conditions and thereby might additionally contribute to the disease risk. We expect that both, genetic variations and epigenetic DNA modifications ciontribute to the disease risk. The aim of subproject is to identify those characteristics and to determine their contribution to the disease risk.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

To validate epigenetic biomarkers for the disease risk of depression we are recruiting 50 adolescents with and 50 adolescents without diagnosis of acute depression for a case/control study. Clinical diagnosis will be optained using the Diagnostic Interview for Mental Disorders in Children and Adolescents (Kinder-DIPS). DNA will be extracted from saliva samples, genotyped and methylation rates of CpG-rich regions will be analyzed and compared between cases and controls. In particular, methylation rates of the following candidate genes are in the center of the analysis: ABCB1, FKBP5, P2RX4, P2RX5.

Interventions/Observational Groups

  •   Case/Control study comparing epigenetic modifications (DNA methylation) in CpG-rich regions within candidate genes (ABCB1, FKBP5, P2RX4, P2RX5) between adolescents with and without diagnosis of major depression.
    DNA will be extracted from saliva samples, genotyped and methylation rates of CpG-rich regions will be analyzed and compared between cases and controls.

Primary Outcome

Case or control group assignment based on a detailed diagnosis using the Diagnostic Interview for Mental Disorders in Children and Adolescents (Kinder-DIPS). Genetic variations and DNA methylation rates in CpG-rich regions of the genes ABCB1, FKBP5, P2RX4 and P2RX7 will be determined as predictors of the case/control status.
