This study aimed to replicate positive associations between polymorphisms of the neurotrophin-3 gene and schizophrenia. The reported associations, which were the results of searching for mutations in the locus in schizophrenics under the hypothesis of neurodevelopmental etiology of schizophrenia, are that the states carrying the (CA)23 allele of the CA repeat in the first intron have a 2.56-fold increased risk of schizophrenia and those carrying the allele Glu-63 instead of Gly-63 have a 2.6…

TLDR
The results suggest that the G(- 3004)-A3 haplotype has a modest effect of giving susceptibility to schizophrenia.
Analysis of Enhancer Activity of a Dinucleotide Repeat Polymorphism in the Neurotrophin-3 Gene and Its Association with Bipolar Disorder
TLDR
The results suggest that the examined polymorphism has no major role in giving susceptibility to bipolar disorder, and although the polymorphic region may have an enhancer-like effect on transcriptional activity, there is no evidence for allele-dependent differential effects.
