  • 27 Accesses

Summary

An association study of restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) in the porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD) gene and schizophrenia was conducted. RFLPs detected by MspI, PstI, ApaLI and BstNI in intron 1 of the gene were studied in 49 patients and 79 controls. There were no significant differences between the groups in allele frequencies, genotype counts or haplotype distribution.
