High impact information on CACNG2


Associations of CACNG2 with chemical compounds

  • Our findings suggest that Stargazin dysregulation may be involved with the pathophysiology of BPD, but not with that of schizophrenia, and that Stargazin polymorphisms may play a role in the response to lithium treatment [3].
