Abstract: Background: Recent research suggests that central corticotropin releasing hormone hyperdrive is an important neurobiological risk factor for developing major depression. The availability of free corticotropin releasing hormone in the central nervous system is tightly regulated by the expression of corticotropin releasing hormone binding protein. Therefore, the gene encoding for corticotropin releasing hormone binding protein is a functional candidate gene for major depression.
