Psychiatric genes

 

It seems certain genes are deficient in schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric disorder. Initially a list of the following genes were made

bullet

Acetylcholine receptor subunit gene

bullet

Actin gene

bullet

Dopamine hyroxylase gene

bullet

β-endorphin gene

bullet

Pituitary peptides genes

bullet

Preproenkephalins A and B genes

bullet

Superoxide dismutase gene

bullet

Tubulin gene

bullet

Tyrosine hydoxylase gene.

Today only thosewhich have been shown to be of interest in schizophrenia at least are

bullet

Neuroregulin-1 at chromosome 8p21

bullet

Dysbindin 6p22

bullet

Prolin dehydrogenase gene at 22q11

bullet

G72 at 13q34

Others which have not been proved but suggested include

bullet

Dopamine gene

bullet

Genes for glutamatergic transmission.NMDA (N-mehtyl-D-aspartate) mediate gutamate signalling and transmission agency.
