Gene expression in the peripheral leukocytes and association analysis of PDLIM5 gene in schizophrenia.

PDLIM5 modulates neuronal calcium signaling, co-localizes with synaptic vesicles of neurotransmitters and positive association between its gene and schizophrenia was reported but its relation is still ambiguous. The differential expression of the PDLIM5 gene both in the brain and in the lymphoblasts has been found in schizophrenia compared to control… (More)
