Association of Parkinson's Disease GWAS-Linked Loci with Alzheimer's Disease in Han Chinese.
Qingdao, China. In Mol Neurobiol, 06 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.
Commensal bacteria direct selective cargo sorting to promote symbiosis.
Beijing, China. In Nat Immunol, Sep 2015
Here we report that in mice symbiotic bacteria directed selective cargo sorting in Paneth cells to promote symbiosis through Nod2, a cytosolic bacterial sensor, and the multifunctional protein kinase LRRK2, both encoded by inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)-associated genes.
