Am J Psychiatry 163:1754-9. 2006..The authors sought to establish whether polarity at illness onset, which is related to severity and course, is a familial feature of bipolar affective disorder...

Psychiatr Genet 17:274-86. 2007..Subsequent reports have shown that variations in the DAOA (G72) locus on 13q33 display association with bipolar disorder but these may not account for all of the linkage evidence in the region...

Human Genetics Branch, Intramural Research Program, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health, US Department of Health and Human Services, Bethesda, MD, USA
Neuropsychopharmacology 38:2598-606. 2013..Larger samples would be needed to identify the specific genetic mechanisms that may be involved, but these findings underscore the importance of including more African-American patients in drug trials...

Human Genetics Branch, National Institute of Mental Health NIMH Intramural Research Program, National Institutes of Health NIH, US Department of Health and Human Services, Bethesda, MD, USA
Trends Genet 29:412-8. 2013..We discuss the new opportunities for NGS in these populations, with particular emphasis on investigating psychiatric disorders. We also address some of the challenges facing NGS-based studies of complex phenotypes in founder populations...
- Nested association between genetic variation in tryptophan hydroxylase II, bipolar affective disorder, and suicide attemptsVictor A Lopez
Genetic Basis of Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Mood and Anxiety Program, National Institutes of Health, US Department of Health and Human Services, Bethesda, Maryland, USA
Biol Psychiatry 61:181-6. 2007..No studies have examined TPH2 in large samples of subjects with BPAD and suicide attempts (SA). We tested for a relationship between genetic variation in TPH2 and risk for BPAD and SA in a large family sample...

- Whole-genome association study of bipolar disorderP Sklar
Center for Human Genetic Research, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA 02114, USA
Mol Psychiatry 13:558-69. 2008..Given the heritability of BP disorder, the lack of agreement between studies emphasizes that susceptibility alleles are likely to be modest in effect size and require even larger samples for detection...
