Niacin metabolism and schizophrenia risk in an Indian genome-wide association study

Takeaway

  • NAPRT1 identified as a novel susceptibility gene for schizophrenia in genome-wide association study (GWAS) in an Indian population.

Why this matters

  • Many schizophrenia-associated loci have been identified in European populations; a schizophrenia GWAS in a unique Indian population offers novel findings, with potential implications for rs10866912 genotype and niacin status in schizophrenia susceptibility and treatment.
