here a study in Russia found that males and females differ in their genetic inputs to schizophrenia, here youth onset type.
It was a little confusing because they stated that T allele for DRD3 ser/gly was associated with gly allelle. I'll have to look it up but I thought T was the ser allele. Anyway they found val associated weakly with schizophrenia. COMT val/met was asssociated in females with val allele in shizophrenia. Other associations included a serotonin receptor, one that we have wondered as to whether it could be an N trait candidate gene??
