Located in the Pseudoautosomal region
rs4129148, located near the CSF2RA gene, has been reported in a whole genome association study to be associated with schizophrenia.
The risk allele (oriented to the dbSNP entry) is (G); the odds ratio associated with this allele is 3.23 (CI 2.04 - 5.15). [PMID 17522711]

Given the results from the recent massive Psychiatric Genomics Consortium GWAS, it appears very unlikely
that any large effect common SNPs exist for schizophrenia. It is not completely clear, though, how the previously
replicated results for rs4129148 might be explained. It is currently predicted that 10,000 SNPs contribute to
The diagnosis for schizophrenia has now possibly shifted from asking: Schizophrenic? Yes or No
to How much Schizophrenic?
