Background: The ATP-binding cassette sub-family B member 1 (ABCB1) gene, which encodes the p-glycoprotein at the blood-brain barrier, is investigated for patients' susceptibility to major depressive disorder (MDD) and their therapeutic response to antidepressants. However, there is an inconsistency between the studies of different ethnic groups. The current study aimed to determine the potential correlations of the ABCB1 gene C3435T polymorphism with the susceptibility to MDD and the therapeutic response to citalopram in a Turkish population.
