The present study included a total of 628 patients with schizophrenia and 588 healthy controls to replicate the genetic association between the PEMT gene and schizophreia. However, our results in this study failed to confirm our earlier finding that the C allele was preferentially transmitted by parents to their offspring affected with schizophrenia in a family-based study among the Chinese population.
