ABSTRACT
The article discusses role of Disrupted-in-Schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) in major mental disorder and schizophrenia. It proposes that schizophrenia was a common disease caused by multiple rare alleles. It mentions that the understanding of the role that DISC1 has in neuronal development and cell signaling has been enhanced by the determination of DISC1 binding partners, an appreciation of DISC1's expression during development and functional studies with the use of ribonucleic acid interference.
