De novo gene mutations linked to schizophrenia
De novo genetic mutations in individuals with schizophrenia cluster in specific proteins that play a key role in brain function and overlap with mutations seen in autism, an international team of scientists report. Although inherited genetic mutations account for most of the genetic risk for schizophrenia, emerging evidence shows that uninherited (de novo) mutations also are involved.
