The dysbindin gene (DTNBP1) has been associated with schizophrenia in several populations. Because the clinical characteristics of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder overlap in many respects and findings from genetic studies have suggested common genes between them, we conducted a case control association study of bipolar disorder in Korea to investigate the genetic association between DTNBP1 and bipolar disorder. In total, 163 patients with bipolar disorder and 350 controls were evaluated. We… CONTINUE READING
