A rare functional noncoding variant at the GWAS-implicated MIR137/MIR2682 locus might confer risk to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Schizophrenia (SZ) genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have identified common risk variants in >100 susceptibility loci; however, the contribution of rare variants at these loci remains largelyExpand

“Patient-specific Alzheimer-like pathology in trisomy 21 cerebral organoids reveals BACE2 as a gene-dose-sensitive AD-suppressor in human brain”
A population of >6 million people worldwide at high risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are those with Down Syndrome (DS, caused by trisomy 21 (T21)), 70% of whom develop dementia during lifetime,Expand

Analysis of ANK3 and CACNA1C variants identified in bipolar disorder whole genome sequence data
Genetic markers in the genes encoding ankyrin 3 (ANK3) and the α‐calcium channel subunit (CACNA1C) are associated with bipolar disorder (BP). The associated variants in the CACNA1C gene are mainlyExpand

CACNA1C hypermethylation is associated with bipolar disorder
The CACNA1C gene, encoding a subunit of the L-type voltage-gated calcium channel is one of the best-supported susceptibility genes for bipolar disorder (BD). Genome-wide association studies haveExpand

Mutation intolerant genes and targets of FMRP are enriched for nonsynonymous alleles in schizophrenia
Risk of schizophrenia is conferred by alleles occurring across the full spectrum of frequencies from common SNPs of weak effect through to ultra rare alleles, some of which may be moderately toExpand

Genetic variation in the miR‐708 gene and its binding targets in bipolar disorder
rs12576775 was found to be associated with bipolar disorder (BD) in a genome‐wide association study (GWAS). The GWAS signal implicates genes for the microRNAs miR‐708 and miR‐5579 and the first exonExpand

Hypomethylation of FAM63B in bipolar disorder patients
Bipolar disorder (BD) and schizophrenia (SZ) are known to share common genetic and psychosocial risk factors. A recent epigenome-wide association study performed on blood samples from SZ patientsExpand

The functional GRM3 Kozak sequence variant rs148754219 affects the risk of schizophrenia and alcohol dependence as well as bipolar disorder
We previously reported that a Kozak sequence variant in the metabotropic glutamate receptor 3 gene (GRM3), rs148754219, is associated with bipolar disorder (BP) and affects gene transcription andExpand

Whole-exome sequencing of individuals from an isolated population implicates rare risk variants in bipolar disorder
Bipolar disorder affects about 1% of the world’s population, and its estimated heritability is about 75%. Only few whole genome or whole-exome sequencing studies in bipolar disorder have beenExpand

Exome sequence analysis and follow up genotyping implicates rare ULK1 variants to be involved in susceptibility to schizophrenia
Schizophrenia (SCZ) is a severe, highly heritable psychiatric disorder. Elucidation of the genetic architecture of the disorder will facilitate greater understanding of the altered underlyingExpand
