26206074 Data show preferential fetal CHRFAM7A expression in the human prefrontal cortex and suggest abnormalities in the CHRFAM7A/CHRNA7 ratios in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, due mainly to overexpression of CHRFAM7A.
25681457 Data show that a 1 kb sequence in the untranslated regions of the alpha7-nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (alpha7nAChR) gene CHRFAM7A that is modulated by lipopolysaccharides (LPS).
25473097 CHRFAM7A, a human-specific and partially duplicated alpha7-nicotinic acetylcholine receptor gene with the potential to specify a human-specific inflammatory response to injury.
24787912 This association study was replicated in the NIA-LOAD Familial Study dataset. CHRFAM7A is a dominant negative regulator of CHRNA7 function, the receptor that facilitates amyloid-beta1-42 internalization through endocytosis and has been implicated in AD.
24024466 the involvement of CHRFAM7A in the pathophysiology of the idiopathic generalized epilepsy and indication that c.497-498TG deletion or a nearby polymorphism in the CHRFAM7A gene may play a role in the pathogenesis of this disease
23553139 lack of CHRFAM7A expression in ADNFLE patients might be an important factor in the pathogenesis of autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy
22300029 evidence on the association between variations in CHRNA7 or CHRFAM7A and the risk of dementia is still sparse and inconclusive. Further studies are needed to establish whether some polymorphisms may affect the probability of developing dementia [review]
20926142 the partially duplicated alpha7 nAChR subunit gene may specifically participate in the inflammatory response of the innate immune system.
20351714 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19641318 polymorphism of CHRFAM7A can be implicated in Alzheimer's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and Pick's disease
