The recent finding that duplications of the 22q11.2 chromosome region protect against schizophrenia (Rees et al., 2013) provides an outstanding case in point, because the reciprocal deletion of this region represents one of the most highly penetrant and well-documented causes of schizophrenia uncovered to date. Of particular interest with regard to deletions and duplications of 22q11.2 is that, whereas deletions are strongly associated with schizophrenia risk, duplications of 22q11.2 not only protect against schizophrenia, but also increase risk for autism (Crespi et al., 2010; Sanders...  Read more
