We examined the utility of DNA methylation profiles at the CpG island of SLC6A4 (DMS) as a diagnostic biomarker for major depression (MD). In addition, the relationship between DMS and the serotonin transporter gene-linked polymorphic region (5-HTTLPR) allele, the severity of symptoms, number of early adversities, and therapeutic responses to(More)
In human genetic studies of schizophrenia, we uncovered copy-number variants in RAPGEF6 and RAPGEF2 genes. To discern the effects of RAPGEF6 deletion in humans, we investigated the behavior and neural functions of a mouse lacking Rapgef6. Rapgef6 deletion resulted in impaired amygdala function measured as reduced fear conditioning and anxiolysis.(More)
