Assessment of de novo copy number variations in Italian patients with schizophrenia.

We investigated de novo CNVs in the whole genomic DNA of schizophrenia patients and their parents and, specifically, in putative enhancer motifs.Study participants were part of a wider multicenter study, involving an Italian cohort of schizophrenia patients recruited by members of INRP - Italian Network for Research on Psychoses.Whole genomic DNA obtained from 46 family trios of schizophrenia probands was analyzed using the Enhancer Chip, a customized array CGH developed using the Agilent SurePrint G3 8X60K format, which is able to investigate the whole genome with a 300Kb resolution, specific disease loci at a tenfold higher resolution, and that was highly enriched in probes in more than 1.250 enhancer elements selected from the Vista Enhancer Browser (PLoS One. 2012;7(12):e52264).
