Candidate Gene Analysis of the Human Natural Killer-1 Carbohydrate Pathway and Perineuronal Nets in Schizophrenia: B3GAT2 Is Associated with Disease Risk and Cortical Surface Area
Biological Psychiatry, pp. 90-96, 2011.
The Human Natural Killer-1 carbohydrate (HNK-1) is involved in neurodevelopment and synaptic plasticity. Extracellular matrix structures called perineuronal nets, condensed around subsets of neurons and proximal dendrites during brain maturation, regulate synaptic transmission and plasticity.Ten genes of importance for HNK-1 biosynthesis ...More
