Association of SNPs and haplotypes in APOL1, 2 and 4 with schizophrenia
Association study between Apolipoprotein L and schizophrenia by exhaustive and rule-based combination analysis for identification of multilocus interactions.
TLDR
Although it is considered that the causality of schizophrenia is too complex to identify a susceptible interaction using a small sample size, it was suggested that the healthy controls tend to have the same combination of certain alleles or genotypes for protection from disease development when BRP as a new exhaustive combination analytical method was used.
Associations between DRDs and schizophrenia in a Korean population: multi-stage association analyses
TLDR
The possible association between DRD1 and schizophrenia and the potential contribution of a multi-step strategy for finding genes related to schizophrenia are suggested.
Transmission disequilibrium test provides evidence of association between promoter polymorphisms in 22q11 gene DGCR14 and schizophrenia
TLDR
A family-based association study between the reported functional markers and schizophrenia in 235 Chinese Han trios found significant evidence of preferential transmission of the promoter variants of DGCR14 across all the trios, suggesting that DG CR14 is likely to play an important role in the etiology of schizophrenia in the Chinese Han population.
Replication of a genome-wide association study of panic disorder in a Japanese population
TLDR
A replication analysis of PD using the DigTag2 assay and haplotype analyses of SNPs in the APOL3 and CLU genes failed to show any significant association with PD in these genes.
Multimarker analysis and imputation of multiple platform pooling-based genome-wide association studies
TLDR
A new non-haplotype multimarker multi-loci method that leverages the correlation structure between SNPs in the human genome to increase the efficacy of pooling-based GWA studies.
The function of apolipoproteins L
TLDR
It is proposed that apoLs could function as ion channels of intracellular membranes and be involved in mechanisms triggering programmed cell death.

Support for association of schizophrenia with genetic variation in the 6p22.3 gene, dysbindin, in sib-pair families with linkage and in an additional sample of triad families.
TLDR
The results represent a first successful replication of linkage disequilibrium in psychiatric genetics detected in a region with previous evidence of linkage and will encourage the search for causes of schizophrenia by the genetic approach.
Genetic variation in the 6p22.3 gene DTNBP1, the human ortholog of the mouse dysbindin gene, is associated with schizophrenia.
TLDR
Family-based association analysis of 36 simple sequence-length-polymorphism markers and of 17 SNP markers implicated two regions, separated by approximately 7 Mb, that are strongly associated with schizophrenia, and it is concluded that further investigation of dysbindin is warranted.
Confirmation and refinement of an ‘at-risk’ haplotype for schizophrenia suggests the EST cluster, Hs.97362, as a potential susceptibility gene at the Neuregulin-1 locus
TLDR
A refined 2-marker haplotype (HapBIRE) was identified that shared common alleles with one of the Icelandic ‘at-risk’ haplotypes and is in significant excess in the Irish cases (19.4%) vs controls (12.3%) (P=0.013).
Association of neuregulin 1 with schizophrenia confirmed in a Scottish population.
TLDR
This direct replication of haplotype association in a second population further implicates NRG1 as a factor that contributes to the etiology of schizophrenia.
Support for genetic variation in neuregulin 1 and susceptibility to schizophrenia
TLDR
The results therefore replicate the Icelandic findings in an out-bred Northern European population, although they suggest that the risk conferred by the haplotype is small.
The human apolipoprotein L gene cluster: identification, classification, and sites of distribution.
TLDR
A comparison of tissue distribution with apoA-I, the major structural component of high-density lipoprotein, suggests that the apoL proteins may play a general and fundamental role in lipid biochemistry.
A combined analysis of D22S278 marker alleles in affected sib-pairs: support for a susceptibility locus for schizophrenia at chromosome 22q12. Schizophrenia Collaborative Linkage Group (Chromosome 22).
TLDR
A combined analysis of genotypic data from the marker D22S278 in multiply affected schizophrenic families derived from 11 independent research groups worldwide indicates that may be a susceptibility locus for schizophrenia at 22q12.
A genome-wide scan for linkage to chromosomal regions in 382 sibling pairs with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder.
TLDR
It has to be questioned whether the genetic contribution to this disorder is detectable by these strategies and the possibility raised that it may be epigenetic, i.e., related to gene expression rather than sequence variation.
Schizophrenia susceptibility loci on chromosomes 13q32 and 8p21
TLDR
A genome-wide scan for schizophrenia susceptibility loci (SSL) using 452 microsatellite markers on 54 multiplex pedigrees is presented and it is more probable that chromosome 8 may be a false positive linkage.
Neuregulin 1 and susceptibility to schizophrenia.
TLDR
The results of a genomewide scan of schizophrenia families in Iceland show that schizophrenia maps to chromosome 8p, and extensive fine-mapping of the 8p locus and haplotype-association analysis identifies neuregulin 1 (NRG1) as a candidate gene for schizophrenia.
