Scientists told about the genetic nature of schizophrenia

For the development of the disease responds to a variety of factors, one of them is hereditary or genetic. U.S. scientists have discovered a gene that greatly increases the likelihood of human schizophrenia. This required to analyze the state of health of 65 thousand people and correlate the collected information with the found mutations in their genome.

As a result of research, scientists have found a gene C4. This structure is responsible for protein synthesis, which creates markers on the pathogenic bacteria that enter the human body. This gene removes redundant connections in the brain.

Scientists suggest that disruption of the C4 "unleashes" the gene and can destroy the right connections between neurons. It is the rapid decrease in the number of neural connections, experts say, leads to the development of schizophrenia.
