The diverse spatial and temporal expression of alternatively spliced transcript isoforms shapes neurodevelopment and plays a major role in neuronal adaptability. Although alternative splicing is extremely common in the brain, its role in mental illnesses such as schizophrenia has received little attention. To examine this relationship, postmortem brain(More)
The rs1076560 polymorphism of DRD2 (encoding dopamine receptor D2) is associated with alternative splicing and cognitive functioning; however, a mechanistic relationship to schizophrenia has not been shown. Here, we demonstrate that rs1076560(T) imparts a small but reliable risk for schizophrenia in a sample of 616 affected families and five independent(More)
