Three gene-rich loci-HS212G6, HSU93305, and HS884M20-within the short arm of the X chromosome have been examined for allelic association with schizophrenia by the transmission disequilibrium test in 70 families of male individuals affected with schizophrenia. Neither the HS212G6 nor HS884M20 was found to be associated with schizophrenia. The HSU93305 locus, however, was significantly associated with schizophrenia (X(2)=17.92, df=3, P
