Alexander Niculescu from Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, US, and others at Harvard, UC San Diego, Massachusetts General Hospital and SUNY Upstate Medical University, studied the RORA and RORB genes of 152 children with the condition and 140 control children.
They found four alterations to the RORB gene that were positively associated with being bipolar.
Our findings suggest that clock genes in general and RORB in particular may be important candidates for further investigation in the search for the molecular basis of bipolar disorder," said Niculescu.
RORB is mainly expressed in the eye, pineal gland and brain.
