25340730 Across three psychiatric disorders (n=2815 patients), we observed no consistent association between SULT4A1-1 status and atypical antipsychotic effect
24988429 These results show that SULT4A1 is widely expressed in human tissues, but mostly as a splice variant that produces a rapidly degraded protein. Dimerization protects the protein from degradation.
24956247 This study provides a second replication of superior olanzapine response in SULT4A1-1-positive subjects compared with SULT4A1-1-negative subjects.
21521020 determination of SULT4A1-1 haplotype status might be useful for identifying patients who show an enhanced response to long-term olanzapine treatment.
20819778 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-gene interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19439498 Cytosolic SULT4A1 interacts with PIN1.
19343046 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19125109 The lack of polymorphisms in the coding region of the SULT4A1 gene is highly unusual and, along with its high conservation between species, suggests that SULT4A1 may have an important function in vivo.
19125109 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18823757 These results provide the first evidence of how genetic variation in Sult4A1 may be related to clinical symptoms and cognitive function in schizophrenia
18823757 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
16152568 Candidate gene for schizophrenia susceptibility.
