Abstract

Schizophrenia is a common and complex psychiatric disorder. Significant evidence has suggested that genetic factors play pivotal roles in the etiology of schizophrenia. More than 100 schizophrenia candidate genes have been reported; however, many of them do not have satisfactory replications among different populations. Among these genes, RELN is thought to be associated with schizophrenia in many populations, suggesting it is a real risk gene for this disorder. Identified in the GWAS study, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs7341475, located in intron 4 of RELN, has been successfully replicated in subsequent investigations, implying its potential contribution to schizophrenia susceptibility. To investigate the association of rs7341475 with schizophrenia in Chinese populations, a case-control association analysis was conducted with samples from Yuxi (400 cases and 400 controls) in southwestern China. The results do not indicate any association of rs7341475 with schizophrenia, which suggests it is not a risk SNP for schizophrenia in Han Chinese.
