The background data set for this paper, including a list of genes associated with schizophrenia, each with links to ENTREZ, PUBMED, and OMIM can be found at Relationships between susceptibility genes and their protein products are also detailed.

I have added a dataset for genes associated with bipolar disorder at Polygenicpathways which I hope will be useful. The dataset lists all genes for which positive association has been reported, and decribes the various interactions of their protein products.

There is of course extreme heterogeneity in gene association studies. However, as is the case in schizophrenia, the bipolar susceptibility candidates are closely related and form elements of clearly-defined signalling networks. When this is the case, multiple interactions between the susceptibility genes may provide a better definition of risk. This is elegantly demonstrated in the paper by Wu and colleagues relating to bladder cancer (Wu et al., 2006).

Many of these bipolar risk genes have also been implicated in schizophrenia. This overlap has already been a subject for a live discussion led by...  Read more
