Schizophrenia susceptibility genes and their neurodevelopmental implications: focus on neuregulin 1.
On the basis of epidemiological as well as neurobiological evidence, schizophrenia has been conceptualized as a neurodevelopmental disorder. It is also known to have a large heritable component and a complex genetic architecture. Many putative susceptibility genes have recently been identified, arising both from positional cloning and candidate gene approaches. The evidence is strong for neuregulin 1, dysbindin and DISC1, and moderate for several others. However, there are key unanswered ques...Expand abstract
