Quantitation of X-Y homologous genes in patients with schizophrenia by multiplex polymerase chain reaction.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: The genetic basis of schizophrenia is obscure. In an XX male patient with schizophrenia we previously showed that one X;Y translocation breakpoint was in pseudoautosomal region 1 (PAR1) with the effect that the proximal segment of PAR1 from the PAR1 boundary to acetylserotonin N-methyl transferase (ASMT) distally was triplicated in this patient. This study determined whether dosage imbalances of X-Y homologous regions in general are associated with schizophrenia. METHODS: A multi...
