The anticipation phenomenon, described as either an increase in disease severity, a decrease in age at onset, or both, in successive generations, has been suggested as a possibility of genetic transmission for bipolar affective disorder. We report here investigation of the stability of intergenerational transmission of a variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphism, found in the Huntingtin interacting protein-1 related gene (HIP12/HIP1R) that is mapped to the chromosome 12q24.31 region, in nine pedigrees showing decreased age at onset in successive generations. We did not observe any allelic instability but we report a deletion that includes this VNTR polymorphism. Allelic and genotypic association studies should be undertaken to verify the involvement of HIP12/HIP1R in bipolar disorder.
