BACKGROUND The activity of angiotension converting enzyme (ACE; OMIM: 106180) in different brain regions of patients with schizophrenia changed, suggesting a possible involvement of ACE in psychiatric disorders. Genetic polymorphism of insertion/deletion (I/D; dbSNP rs4646994) in the gene encoding ACE has been well defined. METHODS The present case… CONTINUE READING
