Abstract

We carried out a GWAS meta-analysis of combined mixed-ancestry schizophrenia, schizoaffective, and bipolar cohorts that resulted in the identification of six genome-wide significant loci, including one novel locus at chr8q24.3, encompassing TSNARE1 (P = 1.28 × 10(-9)). The analysis included a total of 13,394 cases and 34,676 controls. While the function of TSNARE1 remains unknown, bioinformatic predictions based on phylogenetic ancestry indicate it may have a vertebrate-specific function in intracellular protein transport and synaptic vesicle exocytosis.
