    The d-amino acid oxidase activator (DAOA) protein regulates the function of d-amino oxidase (DAO), an enzyme that catalyzes the oxidative deamination of d-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine ( D-DOPA) and d-serine. D-DOPA is converted to l-3,4-DOPA, a precursor of dopamine, whereas d-serine participates...

    Background: Schizophrenia is a neurodegenerative disorder that occurs worldwide and can be difficult to diagnose. It is the foremost neurological disorder leading to suicide among patients in both developed and underdeveloped countries. D-amino acid oxidase activator (DAOA), also known as G72,...

    Bipolar disorder (BP) is a complex disorder caused by a number of liability genes interacting with the environment. In recent years, a large number of linkage and association studies have been conducted producing an extremely large number of findings often not replicated or partially replicated....

    Background: Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder are common and often destructive brain disorders. It has generally been assumed that dozens of genes, along with environmental factors, contribute to the development of these diseases. Schizophrenia and bipolar mood disorder affect many families...

    Introduction: Bipolar disorder is characterized by severe mood symptoms including major depressive and manic episodes. During manic episodes, many patients show cognitive dysfunction. Dopamine and glutamate are important for cognitive processing, thus the COMT and DAOA genes that modulate the...

    Expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and somatostatin (SST) mRNAs in the brain decreases progressively and robustly with age, and lower BDNF and SST expression in the brain has been observed in many brain disorders. BDNF is known to regulate SST expression; however, the...

    The article discusses research being done on neurogenetics. It references the study "Human-specific transcriptional networks in the brain," by G. Konopka and colleagues in the 2012 issue of "Neuron" journal. Results show that the pattern of gene expression in the caudate nucleus were much more...

    Background: We have previously shown that monoclonal antibody AM34, which is reactive with senile plaques, may recognize the C terminus of complement factor H. In this study, we investigated the expression of factor H in tissue from a human brain and the relation between AM34...

    Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common primary brain tumor of the adult. Despite existing multimodal aggressive treatment regiments the prognosis of patients with GBM remains very poor. Most patients die within two years after diagnosis. Changes in individual gene expressions frequently accompany...
