Recent molecular genetic studies have reported a positive association of schizophrenia with several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and haplotypes from the human dystrobrevin-binding protein 1 (DTNBP1) gene locus on chromosome 6p. This finding suggests that the DTNBP1 gene is likely a susceptible gene for schizophrenia. Because all the SNPs showing positive association with schizophrenia locate at the intronic sequences of the DTNBP1 gene, we set out to search for mutations in the protein-coding sequences and at the 5' promoter region of the DTNBP1 gene to investigate if the DTNBP1 gene is a schizophrenia-susceptible gene. We directly sequenced the cDNA of DTNBP1 gene in 50 schizophrenic patients and the 5' promoter region of the DTNBP1 genomic DNA in 94 schizophrenia patients. No mutations were identified in either the protein-coding sequences or the 5' promoter region of the human DTNBP1 gene in this sample. Thus, in contrast to prior studies reporting positive association of the DTNBP1 gene with schizophrenia in both Irish and German population, our data indicate that the human DTNBP1 is unlikely a major susceptible gene for schizophrenia in Chinese Han patients from Taiwan.
