Abstract

Twenty-one multiplex bipolar (BP) families, suitable for linkage studies, are described. The families include 365 informative persons (whose genotypes can be determined from available DNA samples), 154 of whom have BP, schizoaffective or recurrent unipolar diagnoses. The power of such a series to detect linkage is estimated through simulations under assumptions concerning the inheritance of BP illness, the genetic distances between the illness locus and markers, and marker heterozygosity. It is concluded that this series has greater than 50% power to detect linkage when only 25% of the families are linked to the locus under study. This paper is intended to serve as an introduction to a systematic genomic search for genes causing vulnerability to BP disease among these families.
