Several investigations have reported that the translin-associated factor X gene (TSNAX)/disrupted-in-schizophrenia-1 gene (DISC1) was associated with major psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder (BP), and major depressive disorder (MDD). TSNAX is located immediately upstream of DISC1, and has been shown to undergo intergenic splicing with DISC1. It thus may also be influenced by translocation. To our knowledge, there are no reported gene-based association analyses… CONTINUE READING
