Abstract

Linkage disequilibrium mapping of the MHC region in 80 British parent-offspring trios showed that NOTCH4 was highly associated with schizophrenia. The A-->G substitution in the promoter region and the (CTG)n repeat in exon 1 of NOTCH4 may be candidate sites conferring susceptibility to schizophrenia.
