Previous studies implicated centrosomal dysfunction as a source of various neuropsychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia (SZ). Two recent reports [Gurling et al., 2006 ; Datta et al., 2008 . Mol Psychiatry] described an association between polymorphisms in the PCM1 gene and SZ in a UK/Scottish population. In this study, we aimed to replicate these findings in a Northern Swedish association sample of 486 research subjects with SZ and 512 unrelated control individuals. We genotyped 12… Expand
No association between the PCM1 gene and schizophrenia: A multi-center case-control study and a meta-analysis
TLDR
The data did not support genetic variants in the PCM1 gene as a susceptibility locus for schizophrenia, and a meta-analysis did not reveal an association between the four examined SNPs and schizophrenia. Expand
Road Map To Schizophrenia Genetics: A Qualitative Systematic Review
TLDR
A geographical distribution of the genetic markers around the world with its implications to schizophrenia is presented and there remains some doubt about the genes identified and further investigation and wider confirmation are needed. Expand
DISC1-binding proteins in neural development, signalling and schizophrenia
TLDR
A picture begins to emerge of DISC1 as a key hub for multiple critical developmental pathways within the brain, disruption of which can lead to a variety of psychiatric illness phenotypes. Expand
Currently recognized genes for schizophrenia: High‐resolution chromosome ideogram representation
TLDR
A master list of known, clinically relevant, or susceptibility genes contributing to schizophrenia is compiled to enable clinical and laboratory geneticists, genetic counselors, and other clinicians to access convenient pictorial images of the distribution and location of contributing genes to inform diagnosis and gene‐based treatment as well as provide risk estimates for genetic counseling of families with affected relatives.

What went wrong with variant effect predictor performance for the PCM1 challenge
TLDR
Most of the protein was predicted to be functionally robust to mutation—a feature that likely makes it a harder problem for generalized variant effect predictors, and this observation is analyzed to analyze the reasons for this observation. Expand
PCM1 is necessary for focal ciliary integrity and is a candidate for severe schizophrenia
TLDR
The data emphasize a role for the pericentriolar material in the postnatal brain, with progressive degenerative ciliary and behavioral phenotypes; and they support a contributory role for PCM1 in some individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia. Expand
DISC1 and Huntington's Disease – Overlapping Pathways of Vulnerability to Neurological Disorder?
TLDR
The novel finding of a high degree of connectivity between the DISC1 scaffold protein, linked to psychiatric illness, and huntingtin, the protein which is mutated in Huntington's disease, is found. Expand
Evaluation of DISC1 Gene rs3738401 Polymorphism in Iranian Parkinson Patients affected by type 2 Diabetes
Parkinson's disease is just a progressive disorder of the neural system that affects individual’s movement. It develops slowly, sometimes beginning with barely obvious vibration in just one hand. ButExpand
A gene expression and systems pathway analysis of the effects of clozapine compared to haloperidol in the mouse brain implicates susceptibility genes for schizophrenia
TLDR
Clozapine significantly changed gene expression in pathways related to neuronal growth and differentiation to a greater extent than haloperidol; including the microtubule-associated protein kinase (MAPK) signalling and GO terms related to axonogenesis and neuroblast proliferation. Expand
Nutritional, hormonal and genetic factors in the development of overeating tendency toward food addiction
TLDR
The discoveries suggest that FA may represent a sub-group of obese individuals with unique nutritional, hormonal and genetic factors. Expand

Support for NRG1 as a susceptibility factor for schizophrenia in a northern Swedish isolated population.
TLDR
The NRG1 gene contributes to the susceptibility for schizophrenia in the northern Swedish population by investigating haplotypic association, dependent and independent of LD block structure. Expand
Families with the risk allele of DISC1 reveal a link between schizophrenia and another component of the same molecular pathway, NDE1.
TLDR
This study conditioned a sample of Finnish families for the presence of the Finnish tentative risk allele for DISC1 and re-analyzed genome-wide scan data of 443 markers to support the concept that initial gene findings in multifactorial diseases will assist in the identification of other components of complex genetic etiology.

Association study of GSK3 gene polymorphisms with schizophrenia and clozapine response
TLDR
The results suggest that GSK3β polymorphisms might be involved in schizophrenia risk but do not appear to play a significant role in clozapine response. Expand
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. Expand
Genetic association and brain morphology studies and the chromosome 8p22 pericentriolar material 1 (PCM1) gene in susceptibility to schizophrenia.
TLDR
The PCM1 gene is implicated in susceptibility to schizophrenia and is associated with orbitofrontal gray matter volumetric deficits. Expand
A threonine to isoleucine missense mutation in the pericentriolar material 1 gene is strongly associated with schizophrenia
TLDR
It is hypothesized that mutant PCM1 may be responsible for causing a subtype of schizophrenia through abnormal cell division and abnormal regeneration in dividing cells in the central nervous system. Expand
Linkage of familial schizophrenia to chromosome 13q32.
TLDR
These results provide independent significant evidence of linkage of a schizophrenia-susceptibility locus to markers on 13q32 and support the presence of a second susceptibility locus on 8p21. Expand

TLDR
Abnormalities of PCNT2, the centrosomal protein essential for microtubule organization, may be suggested to lead to neurodevelopmental abnormalities in the pathogenesis of schizophrenia. Expand
Genomewide genetic linkage analysis confirms the presence of susceptibility loci for schizophrenia, on chromosomes 1q32.2, 5q33.2, and 8p21-22 and provides support for linkage to schizophrenia, on chromosomes 11q23.3-24 and 20q12.1-11.23.
TLDR
The weight of evidence for linkage to the chromosome 1q22, 5q33.2, 8p21-22 and 11q21 suggests that these regions do indeed harbor schizophrenia-susceptibility loci and is now sufficient to justify intensive investigation of these regions by methods based on linkage disequilibrium. Expand
Recruitment of PCM1 to the centrosome by the cooperative action of DISC1 and BBS4: a candidate for psychiatric illnesses.
TLDR
It is shown that pericentriolar material 1 protein (PCM1) forms a complex at the centrosome with disrupted-in-schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) and Bardet-Biedl syndrome 4 protein (BBS4), which provides a crucial pathway for cortical development associated with the pathology of SZ. Expand
