Schizophrenia tied to brain cell development: study – CTV News

TORONTO -- Clues to how psychiatric disorders like schizophrenia originate can be found in the early development of human brain cells, according to a new study that looked at human embryonic stem cells and gene expression data. While genetic risks have long been linked to psychiatric disorders, researchers have found new evidence that shows what part of the process disrupts brain cell development and their role in a wide range of psychiatric disorders.

Modeling uniquely human gene regulatory function via targeted humanization of the mouse genome – Nature.com

Generating a HACNS1 knock-in mouse model We designed a targeting construct for homologous recombination including a 1.2kb human sequence encompassing HACNS1 that was previously shown to encode human-specific enhancer activity in transgenic mouse embryos10. We replaced the orthologous mouse locus using homology-directed repair in C57BL6/J-AwJ/J (B6 agouti) embryonic stem (ES) cells (Fig.1B, Supplementary Figs.1A, B, Supplementary Data1; Methods).
