Association study of -1727 A/T, -50 C/T and (CAA)n repeat GSK-3beta gene polymorphisms with schizophrenia.

Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) is a downstream component of the Wnt pathway and recent studies have reported abnormal levels of GSK-3beta in schizophrenia. In a sample of 147 schizophrenic patients and 212 healthy individuals, we analyzed two common SNPs at position -1727 A/T and -50 C/T and a (CAA)(n) repeat polymorphism localized in intron 1 of the… CONTINUE READING
