Abstract

BACKGROUND: It has been recently reported that a functional variant in the ZDHHC8 gene encoding a putative palmitoyltransferase directly confers susceptibility to schizophrenia in females (). METHODS: We investigated the putative risk allele (rs175174) in four schizophrenia association samples including a Bulgarian proband and parent sample (474 trios) and three case-control panels of European origin (1028 patients/1253 control subjects) in an attempt to replicate these findings. RESULTS: Our results do not support the hypothesis that genetic variation at rs175174 is associated with increased risk for schizophrenia nor do they suggest the presence of gender-specific differences. CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that the reported genetic association by either represents type I error resulting from sampling variance or that rs175174 is in linkage disequilibrium (LD) with the functional variant for schizophrenia and different LD patterns obscure the detection of association.
