Arch Neurol. 2008;65:943-51 pubmed publisher..We have not, so far, identified mutations in the coding exons of 6 candidate genes (MTMR9, MTMR7, CTSB, SGCZ, SG223, and ATP6V1B2) located in the genetic interval. We report a sixth locus for GEFS(+) on chromosome 8p23-p21...

Nat Genet. 2010;42:608-13 pubmed publisher..05 in an additional African-American cohort (N<or=840 in the Genetic Study of Atherosclerosis Risk). These results provide insights into platelet aggregation pathways and may suggest new antiplatelet therapeutic targets. ..

Copy number variations associated with obesity-related traits in African Americans: a joint analysis between GENOA and HyperGEN. Obesity (Silver Spring). 2012;20:2431-7 pubmed publisher..These CNVs overlap the PARK2, GYPA, and SGCZ genes. Our results suggest that CNV may play a role in the etiology of obesity in AAs.

Neuropsychopharmacology. 2013;38:1864-70 pubmed publisher..These also suggest that the overlap between genes scored as positive in these data sets can have higher probability as susceptibility genes for psychosis. ..

Neuroscience. 2014;272:88-91 pubmed publisher..E- and ?-sarcoglycan are both expressed in brain tissue. In this study we tested whether zeta-sarcoglycan gene (SGCZ) mutations also contribute to this disorder...
