Changes in RNA splicing: A new mechanism for genetic risk in schizophrenia
New research has identified sections of DNA associated with changed gene expression that causes schizophrenia. the loci effects the risks of schizophrenia by affecting alternative splicing. This is when the DNA is coded into different proteins. This finding will allow scientist to make more precise classification of culprit genes for schizophrenia and other brain disorders. throughout the research 4 disease susceptibility genes for schizophrenia that are effected through alternative splicing.
