Heterogeneity at the dopamine D3 receptor gene. Maziade, Michel; Martinez, Maria; Rodrigue, Caroline; Gauthier, Benoît; Tremblay, Guy; Fournier, Christian; Bissonnette, Luc; Simard, Carl; Roy, Marc-André; Rouillard, Eric; Mérette, Chantal; Maziade, M; Martinez, M; Rodrigue, C; Gauthier, B; Tremblay, G; Fournier, C; Bissonnette, L; Simard, C; Roy, M A // British Journal of Psychiatry;Jan97, Vol. 170, p27 

    Background: The dopamine D3 receptor gene (DRD3) is a meaningful candidate gene because it unifies the dopamine and the limbic hypotheses for schizophrenia. We tested for an allelic association between schizophrenia and the DRD3 Mscl alleles, hypothesising heterogeneity between...

    Hereditary defects in the repair of DNA damage are implicated in a variety of diseases, many of which are typified by neurological dysfunction and/or increased genetic instability and cancer. Of the different types of DNA damage that arise in cells, single-strand breaks (SSBs) are the most...

  • NPHS2 mutations in late-onset focal segmental glomerulosclerosis: R229Q is a common disease-associated allele. Tsukaguchi, Hiroyasu; Sudhakar, Akulapalli; Tu Cam Le; Trang Nguyen; Jun Yao; Schwimmer, Joshua A.; Schchter, Asher D.; Poch, Esteban; Abreau, Patricia F.; Appel, Gerald B.; Pereira, Aparecido B.; Kalluri, Raghu; Pollak, Martin R.; Le, Tu Cam; Nguyen, Trang; Yao, Jun; Schachter, Asher D; Abreu, Patricia F // Journal of Clinical Investigation;12/1/2002, Vol. 110 Issue 11, p1659 

    Mutations in NPHS2, encoding podocin, have been identified in childhood onset focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). The role of NPHS2 in adult disease is less well defined. We studied 30 families with FSGS and apparent autosomal recessive inheritance and 91 individuals with primary...

    Background: Mutations in a gene encoding a novel protein of unknown function-the ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein 1 gene (GDAP1)-are associated with the autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4A (CMT4A).Objective: To investigate the...

    Background: Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS, Gorlin-Goltz syndrome) presents various symptoms and can disfigure patients. The estimated prevalence is around 1:100,000.Objective: To systematically investigate the clinical manifestations of NBCCS patients of...

  • Infantile leukemia and soybeans--a hypothesis. Abe, T // Leukemia (08876924);Mar99, Vol. 13 Issue 3, p317 

    Recent molecular-genetic studies have revealed that in the majority of patients with secondary leukemia induced by topoisomerase II (topo II) inhibitors and also with infantile acute leukemia (IAL), the breakpoints are clustered within scaffold attachment regions (SARs) of 3'-MLL-bcr near exon...

    Background: For many common medical and neuropsychiatric disorders, early age at onset reflects high familial liability to illness. However, for schizophrenia, most studies do not find such a relationship.Method: Using Cox proportional hazard modes, we investigate this...
