Association of Parkinson's Disease GWAS-Linked Loci with Alzheimer's Disease in Han Chinese.
Qingdao, China. In Mol Neurobiol, Feb 2016
Here, in order to discover potential AD-related loci, we investigated the association between late-onset AD (LOAD) susceptibility and nine single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (rs11724635 of BST1, rs12637471 of MCCC1, rs15553999 of TMEM229, rs17649553 of MAPT, rs34311866 of TMEM175-GAK-DGKQ, rs356182 of SNCA, rs6430538 of ACMSD-TMEM163, rs76904798 of LRRK2 and rs823118 of RAB7L1-NUCKS1) which were reported to have genome-wide significant associations with PD risk in a recent Genome Wide Association Study performed among white population.
STK39, But Not BST1, HLA-DQB1, and SPPL2B Polymorphism, Is Associated With Han-Chinese Parkinson's Disease in Taiwan.
Dschang, Cameroon. In Medicine (baltimore), Oct 2015
including serine threonine kinase 39 (STK39) rs1955337, bone marrow stromal cell antigen 1 (BST1) rs11724635, major histocompatibility complex, class II, DQ beta 1 (HLA-DQB1) rs9275326, and signal peptide peptidase-like 2B (SPPL2B) rs62120679, by genotyping 596 Han-Chinese patients with PD and 597 age-matched control subjects.
Genetic variants in sporadic Parkinson's disease: East vs West.
Singapore, Singapore. In Parkinsonism Relat Disord, 2012
Numerous GWAS linked loci including BST1 (bone marrow stromal cell antigen 1), PARK16 (parkinson disease 16 susceptibility), GAK (cyclin G associated kinase), and HLA (human leukocyte antigen) have also been identified.
