Digging Deeper Into The Genetics Of Schizophrenia By Evaluating MicroRNAs

Sunday, May 11, 2008 - 19:21 in Health & Medicine

Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center have illuminated a window into how abnormalities in microRNAs may contribute to the behavioral and neuronal deficits associated with schizophrenia and possibly other brain disorders. They uncovered a previously unknown alteration in the production of microRNAs of a mouse modeled to have the same chromosome 22q11.2 deletions previously identified in humans with schizophrenia.
