- Schizophrenia is not associated with the functional candidate gene ERBB3: results from a case-control studyTetsufumi Kanazawa
Department of Psychiatry, Center for Behavioral Genomics, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California 92093, USA
Am J Med Genet B Neuropsychiatr Genet 144:113-6. 2007..However, our failure to find genetic association suggests that the differential expression of ERBB3 in schizophrenia may be environmentally driven, or involve cis- or trans-acting genetic factors beyond the boundaries of the gene itself...
- Meta-analysis reveals no association of the Val66Met polymorphism of brain-derived neurotrophic factor with either schizophrenia or bipolar disorderTetsufumi Kanazawa
Department of Psychiatry, Center for Behavioral Genomics, University of California, San Diego, California 92093, USA
Psychiatr Genet 17:165-70. 2007..Many case-control association studies have been performed to see if BDNF could serve as a useful clinical diagnostic biomarker for schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, but results have been equivocal...
- The utility of SELENBP1 gene expression as a biomarker for major psychotic disorders: replication in schizophrenia and extension to bipolar disorder with psychosisTetsufumi Kanazawa
Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California 92093 0603, USA
Am J Med Genet B Neuropsychiatr Genet 147:686-9. 2008..Future studies should exploit DNA-based methods and molecular investigations on the role of SELENBP1 in order to gain insights into the nature of its influence on schizophrenia and psychotic symptoms...
