Abstract

A recent study identified a putative association between variants in the regulator of G-protein signalling 4 (RGS4) and schizophrenia, Chowdari et al. [2002: Hum Mol Genet 11: 1373-1380]. RGS4 is both a positional and functional candidate gene for schizophrenia. Chowdari and colleagues identified association at this locus in a number of distinct and ethnically diverse samples, although the pattern of association was not the same in all the samples. Our study attempted to replicate this association in an independent Irish sample of schizophrenia cases and controls. We succeeded in detecting evidence of association at the RGS4 locus. The signal comes from a four-marker haplotype that is in significant excess in our case sample. The same haplotype is in excess in the Caucasian schizophrenia sample used by Chowdari et al. [2002: Hum Mol Genet 11: 1373-1380]. This study provides further support for the contribution of RGS4 to schizophrenia susceptibility.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 December 2007.
All research outputs
#3,484,114
of 12,180,532 outputs
Outputs from American Journal of Medical Genetics
#181
of 1,354 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#82,760
of 276,683 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Journal of Medical Genetics
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,180,532 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,354 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.6. This one is in the 9th percentile – i.e., 9% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 276,683 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
