Abstract: [Abstract] Objective · To explore the association between neuropeptide Y (NPY) gene polymorphism and schizophrenia in Chinese Han population.
Methods · Four single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci (rs16148, rs1859290, rs16147, and rs16478 in NPY gene) were selected and genotyped
by TaqMan genotyping assay in a case-control study with 678 schizophrenia cases (case group) and 685 healthy controls (control group). The allele,
genotype and haplotype frequencies distribution of the SNPs between the groups were compared with SHEsis online software. Results · The distribution
of genotype frequency of locus rs16478 showed a nominal statistically difference between the adult-onset schizophrenia (AOS group) and control
group (χ2=6.66, P=0.036, P correction=0.144). Under recessive inherited model, the distribution of CC genotype frequency of locus rs1859290 showed
statistically difference between the male schizophrenia cases and control group (P=0.012, OR=0.97, 95%CI 0.94-0.99, P correction=0.048). The
distribution of haplotype CCTA (consisted of rs16148, rs1859290, rs16147, and rs16478) frequency showed statistically difference between the male AOS
group and control group (8.1% vs 13.2%, OR=0.57, P=0.010, P correction=0.040). Conclusion · The polymorphisms in NPY gene may be associated with
schizophrenia in Chinese Han population.
