The association of CLOCK gene T3111C polymorphism and hPER3 gene 54-nucleotide repeat polymorphism with Chinese Han people schizophrenics.

Zhang J, Liao G, Liu C, Sun L, Liu Y, Wang Y, Jiang Z, Wang Z. Mol Biol Rep. 2011 Jan;38(1):349-54.

To explain the altered sleep patterns in people with schizophrenia, a Chinese study of 148 schizophrenics (as diagnosed via Chinese classification and diagnostic criteria of mental disorders-2nd Edition-Revised) and 199 controls assessed the associations between the clock SNP rs1801260 and schizophrenia.

The study found that those with schizophrenia (as diagnosed by the Chinese classification and diagnostic criteria of mental disorders-2nd Edition-Revised) were more likely to have this SNP.
