Schizophrenia is a severe psychiatric disorder with a world-wide prevalence of 1%. The pathophysiology of the illness is not understood, but is thought to have a strong genetic component with some environmental influences on aetiology. To gain further insight into disease mechanism, we used microarray technology to determine the expression of over 30 000(More)
The molecular basis of schizophrenia is poorly understood; however, different brain regions are believed to play distinct roles in disease symptomology. We have studied gene expression in the superior temporal cortex (Brodmann area 22; BA22), which may play a role in positive pathophysiology, and compared our results with data from the anterior prefrontal(More)
To determine whether the high-level expression of foreign proteins in Escherichia coli can lead to frequent translational errors, we analyzed amino acid misincorporation in mouse epidermal growth factor (mEGF) produced as a TrpE fusion protein. The mEGF DNA does not encode phenylalanine and determining the phenylalanine content of the purified protein will(More)
