Shown here are the results for gene HTR2C from a genomewide linkage mega-analysis of bipolar disorder carried out with 972 informative pedigrees of European ancestry pooled from eight research groups in North America and the United Kingdom and genotyped on the Illumina Linkage Panel 12 consisting of 6090 SNPs.
Details of the methods for the linkage analysis are provided in methods section.
Figure Legend: Graphical display of linkage analysis results for 12 different phenotype by genotype models across the chromosome. The yellow line marks the location of the selected gene on the chromosome, and the white window shows 20 Mb around the gene.
ASMI: Affecteds include bipolar I and schizoaffective manic sub-type disorders
ASMII: Affecteds include ASMI plus bipolar II disorders
ASMIII: Affecteds include ASMII plus recurrent major depression
