This paper reviews recent literature on schizoaffective disorder. Research studies of diagnosis, clinical course and outcome and family history are evaluated. It is concluded that schizoaffective disorder is a heterogeneous category which includes patients with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, a genetically distinct psychosis and a genetic disposition to(More)
Different pre-ribosomal complexes are formed during ribosome biogenesis, and the composition of these complexes is highly dynamic. Dbp4, a conserved DEAD-box RNA helicase implicated in ribosome biogenesis, interacts with nucleolar proteins Bfr2 and Enp2. We show that, like Dbp4, Bfr2 and Enp2 are required for the early processing steps leading to the(More)
Studies on the response of schizoaffective patients to somatic treatments are reviewed. Research suggests that in many cases the response of schizoaffective disorder to pharmacological intervention is similar to that of primary affective disorder. However, it is necessary to take into account the heterogeneity of the category when treating patients. The(More)
