Final Answer :
C
Explanation :
Both depression and CHD have been linked to genes that alter the functioning of the serotonin system. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that affects mood and is also involved in the regulation of the cardiovascular system. Dysregulation of the serotonin system may contribute to both depression and CHD.
