Title
(EN) Methods for treating bipolar mood disorder associated with markers on chromosome 18q
Abstract
(EN)

The present invention is directed to methods of detecting the presence of a bipolar mood disorder susceptibility locus in an individual, comprising analyzing a sample of DNA for the presence of a DNA polymorphism on the long arm of chromosome 18 between markers D18S469 and D18S554, wherein the DNA polymorphism is associated with a form of bipolar mood disorder. The invention for the first time provides strong evidence of a susceptibility gene for bipolar mood disorder that is located in the 18q22-q23 region of the long arm of chromosome 18. The disclosure describes the use of linkage analysis and genetic markers in this 18q22-q23 region to fine map the region and the use of genetic markers to genetically diagnose (genotype) bipolar mood disorder in individuals, to confirm phenotypic diagnoses of bipolar mood disorder, to determine appropriate treatments for patients with particular genotypic subtypes. Isolated polynucleotides useful for genetic linkage analysis of BP-I and methods for obtaining such isolated polynucleotides are also described. -GOVT PAC ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS PAR This invention was made with Government support under Grant Nos.
