Polygenic associations of neurodevelopmental genes in suicide attempt.
Stockholm, Sweden. In Mol Psychiatry, Jan 2016
Among the 590 SA polygenes implicated here, there were several developmentally important functions (cell adhesion/migration, small GTPase and receptor tyrosine kinase signaling), and 16 of the SA polygenes have previously been studied in SB (BDNF, CDH10, CDH12, CDH13, CDH9, CREB1, DLK1, DLK2, EFEMP1, FOXN3, IL2, LSAMP, NCAM1, nerve growth factor (NGF), NTRK2 and TBC1D1).
Cadherins and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Jena, Germany. In Brain Res, 2012
For example, CDH15 and PCDH19 are associated with cognitive impairment; CDH5, CDH8, CDH9, CDH10, CDH13, CDH15, PCDH10, PCDH19 and PCDHb4 with autism; CDH7, CDH12, CDH18, PCDH12 and FAT with bipolar disease and schizophrenia; and CDH11, CDH12 and CDH13 with methamphetamine and alcohol dependency.
Genome-wide association of BMI in African Americans.
Winston-Salem, United States. In Obesity (silver Spring), 2012
These loci are located near PP13439-TMEM212, CDH12, MFAP3-GALNT10, and FER1L4 and had effect sizes between 0.091 and 0.167 s.d. unit (or 0.67-1.24
Primate-specific spliced PMCHL RNAs are non-protein coding in human and macaque tissues.
Antibes, France. In Bmc Evol Biol, 2007
Sequencing of PMCHL genes in several non-human primates allowed to carry out phylogenetic analyses revealing that the initial retroposition event took place within an intron of the brain cadherin (CDH12) gene, soon after platyrrhine/catarrhine divergence, i.e. 30-35 Mya, and was concomitant with the insertion of an AluSg element.
