25982957 Authors hypothesize that any nucleotide variant at the NPAS3 HAEs may lead to altered susceptibility to schizophrenia.
24218632 The accelerated non-coding region 2xHAR142 of NPAS3 behaves as a developmental enhancer in the forebrain of transgenic mice.
23408798 Results indicate that the high density of HAEs present in the human NPAS3 locus could have modified the spatiotemporal expression pattern of NPAS3 in the developing human brain and, therefore, contributed to human brain evolution.
23337948 Identification of NPAS3-V304I helps strengthen the hypothesis that NPAS3 is involved in schizophrenia pathogenesis
22228753 During human postnatal cortical development, there was decreased NPAS3 mRNA yet increased NPAS3 protein expression, suggesting the involvement of posttranscriptional regulation, which results show is modified by miR-17.
21709683 In a HEK293 cell line over-expressing NPAS3, transcriptional targets varied with to circadian rhythm context & C-terminal deletion. NPAS3 contributes to neurodevelopmental transcription factor networks & the regulation of brain glucose metabolism.
21703424 Loss of NPAS3 is associated with the progression of Astrocytomas.
