Membrane phospholipid abnormalities have been proposed to be involved in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia. Cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) plays a major role in the metabolism of fatty acids but is also found in abnormalities in patients with schizophrenia. This study examined the association between the cPLA2 gene BanI polymorphism and schizophrenia.(More)
We investigated a possible association between dysbindin gene (DTNBP1) variants and bipolar I disorder (BID). Five SNPs within DTNBP1 (rs3213207, rs1011313, rs2005976, rs760761, and rs2619522) were genotyped for 151 patients with BID and 478 controls. We observed a significant protective association of the haplotype A-C-G-T-A (all SNPs, P = 0.00016) and(More)
Trace amines and their receptors may be implicated in the pathogenesis of psychiatric disorders. Previous studies have reported association of the trace amine associated receptor 6 (TAAR6) gene with susceptibility to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder but results have not been consistent. The purpose of this study was to examine these associations in Korean(More)
Membrane phospholipid abnormalities have been proposed to be involved in the pathogenesis of mood disorders, and in signal transduction and neurotransmitter uptake. Cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) is not only an essential enzyme in the metabolism of fatty acids but also in signaling process. Therefore, we examined the association between the BanI(More)
The association between Glutathione S-Transferase M1 gene (GSTM1) polymorphism and schizophrenia was examined. One hundred and eleven in-patients with schizophrenia and 130 healthy controls were enrolled in this study. Genotyping was performed using a polymerase chain reaction-based method. The GSTM1 null genotype was significantly more frequent in the(More)
We conducted a case-control association study of the monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP1) gene -2518 polymorphism in 90 patients with major depressive disorder. Genotyping was performed by polymerase chain reaction methods. We found significant differences in genotype and allele frequencies. The present study suggests that this polymorphism may confer(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the association between monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP1) promoter -2518 polymorphism and DSM-IV-based bipolar I disorder (BID) in Korea. Ninety-two patients with BID and 114 healthy controls participated in this study. A polymerase chain reaction-based method was used for genotyping. Genotype and allele(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the association between the monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) promoter -2518 polymorphism and schizophrenia. One hundred and twenty-three schizophrenic inpatients and 114 healthy controls participated in this study. Genotyping was performed by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length(More)
