BACKGROUND - DTNBP1 is associated with schizophrenia in many studies, but the associated alleles and haplotypes vary between samples.

METHOD - We assessed nine single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in this gene for association with schizophrenia in a new sample of 1021 cases and 626 controls from Ireland.

RESULTS - Four SNPs give evidence of association (0.000018
CONCLUSION - This study provides further evidence from a large case/control sample for association of common DTNBP1 alleles and haplotypes with schizophrenia.
