A rare duplication on chromosome 16p11.2 is identified in patients with psychosis in Alzheimer's disease.

Epidemiological and genetic studies suggest that schizophrenia and autism may share genetic links. Besides common single nucleotide polymorphisms, rec...

A novel three-base duplication, E243dup, of GFAP identified in a patient with Alexander disease.
Alexander disease (AxD) is a rare hereditary neurodegenerative disorder caused by glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) gene mutations, most of which are missense mutations. We present an AxD case with a novel de novo three-base duplication mutation

Is Chromosome 15q13.3 Duplication Involving CHRNA7 Associated With Oral Clefts?
Copy number variants have been associated with intellectual disability, multiple congenital anomalies and craniofacial disorders. It has been reported that microduplication of 15q13.3 is associated with autism, cognitive impairment, seizures, and att

Chromosome Duplication in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The accurate and complete replication of genomic DNA is essential for all life. In eukaryotic cells, the assembly of the multi-enzyme replisomes that perform replication is divided into stages that occur at distinct phases of the cell cycle. Replicat

A 7.5-Mb duplication at chromosome 11q21-11q22.3 is associated with a novel spastic ataxia syndrome.
The autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxias are most commonly caused by nucleotide repeat expansions followed by base-pair changes in functionally important genes. Structural variation has recently been shown to underlie spinocerebellar ataxia typ

A rare case of hypopituitarism with psychosis.
A 46-year-old woman presented multiple times in a 4-month period with hypotension, sepsis, hypoglycaemia and psychosis. A low random cortisol in combination with her presenting complaint made adrenal insufficiency the likely diagnosis. Fluid resuscit

Macular Ganglion Cell -Inner Plexiform Layer Thickness Is Associated with Clinical Progression in Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimers Disease.
We investigated the association of the macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses with disease progression in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD).

Cognitive correlates of psychosis in patients with Parkinson's disease.
Psychosis and hallucinations occur in 20-30% of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). In the current study, we investigate cognitive functions in relation to the occurrence of psychosis in PD patients.
