Studies of families and twins show the importance of genetic factors affecting susceptibility to bipolar disorder and suggest substantial genetic and phenotypic complexity. Robust and replicable genome-wide significant associations have recently been reported in genome-wide association studies at several common polymorphisms, including variants within the genes CACNA1C, ODZ4, and NCAN. Strong evidence exists for a polygenic contribution to risk (ie, many risk alleles of small effect). A notable… Expand
Update on research into the genetics and pharmacogenetics of bipolar disorder
TLDR
Given the fact that BD is a highly heterogeneous disorder, studies with more homogenized groups that gather samples with more specific properties, such as subphenotypes of BD or patients positively responsive to specific drug treatments, may help improve the efficiency of studies. Expand
Genetics of Schizophrenia
TLDR
Schizophrenia GWAS is yielding a growing list of replicated individual risk loci tagged by single nucleotide polymorphisms, copy number variant variants, and polygenes, which are complemented by downstream analyses (network and pathway analyses), a variety of other “omics” approaches, and deep re-sequencing studies (aimed at rare variants).

Genetics of Bipolar Spectrum Disorders: Focus on Family Studies Using Whole Exome Sequencing
TLDR
The family design provides the maximum likelihood of detecting specific genetic markers associated not only with the phenotype but also with potential family forms of BD, which are involved in the development of the cerebral cortex, circadian rhythms, and the processes of glutamate neurotransmission. Expand
Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder
For the past 100 years, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder have been subdivided into separate diagnostic categories. Recent advances in genetic and genomic technologies have made possible a new waveExpand

TLDR
The aim of this study is to provide a synthetic description of the main SNPs variants identified/confirmed by recent extensive WGS analysis as well as by reconstruction in an in vitro mechanism or by amygdala activation protocol in vivo. Expand
Overview of the Genetics of Alcohol Use Disorder.
TLDR
The most promising results associated with AUD and alcohol-related phenotypes have included SNPs of the alcohol metabolism genes ADH and ALDH, which have been found to be protective against the development of AUD. Expand
Association Study of Dysbindin Genotypes with Bipolar I Disorder by Multiple Allele-specific PCR
TLDR
It is probable that allelic heterogeneity along with lack of an established causal variant in the dysbindin gene can be main factors for this discordance in bipolar I disorder. Expand
A genome wide association study suggests the association of muskelin with early onset bipolar disorder: Implications for a GABAergic epileptogenic neurogenesis model.
TLDR
It is proposed that an increase in GABA-A receptors in the hippocampus in BD patients due to lower MKLN1 expression might increase the excitability during the GABA-excited early phase of young neurons, leading to an increased risk of developing a manic/hypomanic episode. Expand
Genome-wide association study of over 40,000 bipolar disorder cases provides novel biological insights
TLDR
This genome-wide association study (GWAS) of 41,917 BD cases and 371,549 controls identified 64 associated genomic loci, which provides the best-powered BD polygenic scores to date, when applied in both European and diverse ancestry samples. Expand
Large-scale genome-wide association analysis of bipolar disorder identifies a new susceptibility locus near ODZ4
TLDR
An analysis of all 11,974 bipolar disorder cases and 51,792 controls confirmed genome-wide significant evidence of association for CACNA1C and identified a new intronic variant in ODZ4, and a pathway comprised of subunits of calcium channels enriched in bipolar disorder association intervals was identified.

Genetics of bipolar disorder: successful start to a long journey.
TLDR
It is indicated that the study of large, phenotypically well-characterized samples will make an important contribution to delineating the etiology and pathogenesis of bipolar disorder and thereby pave the way for major improvements in clinical management. Expand
Phenotypic and genetic complexity of psychosis
TLDR
If the potential of molecular genetics is to be realised, it needs to overcome the major limitations imposed by current psychiatric diagnostic classifications and identify clinical phenotypes that reflect the presence of underlying entities with biological validity. Expand
CAG repeat expansions in bipolar and unipolar disorders.
TLDR
The findings of anticipation in BP disorders and in UPR must be interpreted with caution because of the possible presence of numerous ascertainment biases, but they support the hypothesis that pathological TREs are implicated in the transmission of thesemore disorders. Expand
Common polygenic variation contributes to risk of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
TLDR
The extent to which common genetic variation underlies the risk of schizophrenia is shown, using two analytic approaches, and the major histocompatibility complex is implicate, which is shown to involve thousands of common alleles of very small effect. Expand
The bipolar disorder risk allele at CACNA1C also confers risk of recurrent major depression and of schizophrenia
TLDR
The findings are evidence of some degree of overlap in the biological underpinnings of susceptibility to mental illness across the clinical spectrum of mood and psychotic disorders, and show that at least some loci can have a relatively general effect on susceptibility to diagnostic categories, as currently defined.

Genetics of bipolar disorder
TLDR
It is almost certain that over the next few years bipolar susceptibility genes will be identified, which will have a major impact on the understanding of disease pathophysiology and will provide important opportunities to investigate the interaction between genetic and environmental factors involved in pathogenesis.

Identification of risk loci with shared effects on five major psychiatric disorders: a genome-wide analysis
TLDR
The findings show that specific SNPs are associated with a range of psychiatric disorders of childhood onset or adult onset, and variation in calcium-channel activity genes seems to have pleiotropic effects on psychopathology. Expand
