Pairwise common variant meta-analyses of schizophrenia with other psychiatric disorders reveals shared and distinct gene and gene-set associations.

ABSTRACT: The complex aetiology of schizophrenia is postulated to share components with other psychiatric disorders. We investigated pleiotropy amongst the common variant genomics of schizophrenia and seven other psychiatric disorders using a multimarker association test. Transcriptomic imputation was then leveraged to investigate the functional significance of variation mapped to these genes, prioritising several interesting functional candidates. Gene-based analysis of common variation revealed 67 schizophrenia-associated genes shared with other psychiatric phenotypes, including bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, ADHD and autism-spectrum disorder. In addition, we uncovered 78 genes significantly enriched with common variant associations for schizophrenia that were not linked to any of these seven disorders (P?>?0.05). Multivariable gene-set association suggested that common variation enrichment within biologically constrained genes observed for schizophrenia also occurs across several psychiatric phenotypes. Pairwise meta-analysis of schizophrenia and each psychiatric phenotype was implemented and identified 330 significantly associated genes (PMeta?
