ABSTRACT
The article presents a study concerning the relationship genotype, haplotype and clinical feature of Netrin G1 (NTNG1) in schizophrenia using Han Chinese case-control samples. It mentions that genotyping was performed by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) analysis. It concludes that rs4132604 and the haplotype of the three selected single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) are significantly associated with schizophrenia
