- Heritability and genome-wide analyses of problematic peer relationships during childhood and adolescenceBeate St Pourcain
MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit MRC IEU, University of Bristol, Oakfield House, Oakfield Grove, Bristol, BS8 2BN, UK
Hum Genet 134:539-51. 2015..In summary, our findings suggest that problematic peer relationships are heritable but genetically complex and heterogeneous from age to age, with an increase in common measurable genetic variation during adolescence...
- Association between a high-risk autism locus on 5p14 and social communication spectrum phenotypes in the general populationBeate St Pourcain
Medical Research Council Centre for Causal Analyses in Translational Epidemiology, University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
Am J Psychiatry 167:1364-72. 2010..This study investigated whether rs4307059 also operates as a quantitative trait locus underlying a broader autism phenotype in the general population, focusing specifically on the social communication aspect of the spectrum...
- Links between co-occurring social-communication and hyperactive-inattentive trait trajectoriesBeate St Pourcain
Medical Research Council Centre for Causal Analysis in Translational Epidemiology, School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol, UK
J Am Acad Child Adolesc Psychiatry 50:892-902.e5. 2011..We explored the interrelationship between trajectories of co-occurring symptoms, and sought evidence for shared prenatal/perinatal risk factors...
- Association of COMT Val(108/158)Met genotype and cigarette smoking in pregnant womenMarcus R Munafo
School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, 12a Priory Road, Bristol BS8 1TU, UK
Nicotine Tob Res 13:55-63. 2011..While the COMT gene is therefore one of the more promising candidate genes for smoking behavior, some inconsistencies have begun to emerge...
- Genome-wide association meta-analysis of cortical bone mineral density unravels allelic heterogeneity at the RANKL locus and potential pleiotropic effects on boneLavinia Paternoster
University of Bristol, Bristol, UK
PLoS Genet 6:e1001217. 2010..This finding implicates RANKL as a locus containing variation associated with volumetric bone density and provides further insight into the mechanism by which the RANK/RANKL/OPG pathway may be involved in skeletal development...
