  • A number of studies using the repeat expansion detection (RED) technique have suggested an association between unknown large CAG/CTG repeats and schizophrenia. The polymorphic CAG/CTG repeat loci CTG18.1 and ERDA1 have been reported to account for a high proportion (approximately 90%) of the large repeats detected by RED and may therefore be responsible for the cited association. The recently described locus TGC13-7a contains a highly polymorphic CTA/TAG and CAG/CTG composite repeat, and is… CONTINUE READING
