This abstract concerns a brief association study between RGS4 and bipolar disorder, by an association study of five single nucleotide polymorphisms, rs951436, rs951439, rs2842030, rs2661319, and rs2344671, in 484 patients and 288 controls from the Chinese Han population. In our case-control study, the T allele of the single nucleotide polymorphism rs951436 tended to be protective (P=0.0078), and in addition, a haplotype containing this T allele was also protective for bipolar disorder (P=0.02). Our results provide further evidence to support RGS4 as a potential susceptible gene for bipolar disorder.
