Abstract

Schizophrenia is one of the most common mental health issues worldwide, affecting millions of people. Schizophrenia is a multifactorial condition with many risk factors, including genetics. Recent studies on the genetic factors underlying schizophrenia have focused on the genes such as the DRD2 gene that regulate dopamine function. The dopaminergic system plays a pivotal role as a modulator of affective and cognitive functions. Dopamine is a catecholamine that acts on the central nervous system and is inhibitory or excitatory, depending on the dopamine receptors activated. DRD2 is the main presynaptic receptor of the dopaminergic system. Polymorphisms of the DRD2 gene are known as risk factors for the occurrence of schizophrenia. Some of the known DRD2 gene polymorphisms that play a pivotal role in the incidence of schizophrenia are the Taq1A, -141C Ins/Del, and C957T polymorphisms. We summarize the effects of these polymorphisms on the risk of schizophrenia in different populations.
