Talk:Tourette syndrome

From SNPedia

Hi there, a new paper about genetics of Tourette Syndrome just came out (as of May 2017): Willsey et al. 2017 "De novo coding variants are strongly associated with Tourette disorder". Neuron 94, 486-499.

I was wondering if someone more knowledgeable than me could update the article to reflect the new information. What new SNPs would be associated with Tourette Syndrome?

Thanks for your help! Daniel.

Updated as requested. The publication doesn't list SNP identifiers (i.e. rs-ids), and no specific mutations were actually directly implicated (i.e. proven to be associated) as far as we can tell either. However, it seemed reasonable to take the gene most confidently associated, and, the one (of two) mutations listed in it that did have an rs-id, and add it to SNPedia as a variant with an indirect association to Tourette's, so we went ahead and did that too (rs749318706). An interesting thing to follow in the future will be whether any independent groups confirm these findings overall, or, specifically confirm certain variants. Greg (talk) 21:41, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
