Biological Insights From 108 Schizophrenia-Associated Genetic Loci
TLDR
Associations at DRD2 and several genes involved in glutamatergic neurotransmission highlight molecules of known and potential therapeutic relevance to schizophrenia, and are consistent with leading pathophysiological hypotheses.
Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression
TLDR
A genome-wide association meta-analysis of individuals with clinically assessed or self-reported depression identifies 44 independent and significant loci and finds important relationships of genetic risk for major depression with educational attainment, body mass, and schizophrenia.
Genetic relationship between five psychiatric disorders estimated from genome-wide SNPs
TLDR
Empirical evidence of shared genetic etiology for psychiatric disorders can inform nosology and encourages the investigation of common pathophysiologies for related disorders.
A mega-analysis of genome-wide association studies for major depressive disorder
TLDR
Although this is the largest genome-wide analysis of MDD yet conducted, its high prevalence means that the sample is still underpowered to detect genetic effects typical for complex traits, and it was unable to identify robust and replicable findings.
Loss-of-function mutations in APOC3, triglycerides, and coronary disease.
TLDR
Rare mutations that disrupt AP OC3 function were associated with lower levels of plasma triglycerides and APOC3, and carriers of these mutations were found to have a reduced risk of coronary heart disease.
Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, in the general population, the personality trait neuroticism is significantly correlated with almost every psychiatric disorder and migraine, and it is shown that both psychiatric and neurological disorders have robust correlations with cognitive and personality measures.
Genome-wide association study identifies 30 Loci Associated with Bipolar Disorder
TLDR
The largest genome-wide association study to date, including 20,352 cases and 31,358 controls of European descent, with follow-up analysis of 881 sentinel variants at loci with P<1×10-4, achieves genome- wide significance including 18 novel loci, which provide potential new biological mechanisms for bipolar disorder.
Analysis of five chronic inflammatory diseases identifies 27 new associations and highlights disease-specific patterns at shared loci
TLDR
The COMorbidities among the five immune diseases were best explained by biological pleiotropy rather than heterogeneity (a subgroup of cases genetically identical to those with another disease, possibly owing to diagnostic misclassification, molecular subtypes or excessive comorbidity), and the strong comor bid between primary sclerosing cholangitis and inflammatory bowel disease is likely the result of a unique disease.
Genome-wide association study reveals two new risk loci for bipolar disorder.
TLDR
Results from the largest BD GWAS to date are presented by investigating 2.3 million single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a sample of 24,025 patients and controls and detecting 56 genome-wide significant SNPs in five chromosomal regions including previously reported risk loci ANK3, ODZ4 and TRANK1.
