NALCN (sodium leak channel, non-selective) is located on chromosome 13q (suggested linkage region for schizophrenia). We analyzed 21 polymorphisms in 464 schizophrenia subjects, 220 controls subjects and 119 small nuclear families. We observed nominal association with rs9518320 and rs9518331, suggesting that NALCN is not related to schizophrenia risk.
