    J Neurosci 23:2008-13. 2003
    ..This indicates that COMT genotype is a heritable aspect of dopamine regulation and it further explicates the mechanism by which the COMT valine allele increases susceptibility for psychosis...

    Subroto Ghose
    Clinical Brain Disorders Branch, NIMH, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland, USA
    Int J Neurosci 118:1609-27. 2008
    ..The expression of mGluR2, 3 in DA cells provide a mechanism for glutamate to modulate dopamine release in the human brain and this species-specific difference may be critical to understanding rodent models in schizophrenia...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 101:12604-9. 2004
    ..These convergent data point to a specific molecular pathway by which GRM3 genotype alters glutamate neurotransmission, prefrontal and hippocampal physiology and cognition, and thereby increased risk for schizophrenia...
