Gene expression is the process of converting genetic information encoded in the brain into a final product (a protein or RNA). Uncovering where a given gene's protein is most commonly expressed in the body can yield vital clues as to the purpose of that gene. DISC1 expression has been traced to neurons in a number of areas in the brain, particularly the hippocampus. It is associated with synaptic function, suggesting that one of its adult functions may be synaptic plasticity, a process that underlines learning and memory.
