Analysis of the genetic variability in Parkinson's disease from Southern Spain.
Granada, Spain. In Neurobiol Aging, 08 Nov 2015
Genetic analysis was performed through a next-generation sequencing panel to screen 8 PD-related genes (LRRK2, SNCA, PARKIN, PINK1, DJ-1, VPS35, GBA, and GCH1) in EOPD and FPD groups and direct Sanger sequencing of GBA exons 8-11 and LRRK2 exons 31 and 41 in the LOPD group.
The endosomal pathway in Parkinson's disease.
Oxford, United Kingdom. In Mol Cell Neurosci, May 2015
In this review, we summarized the evidence that a number of Parkinson's associated genetic mutations or polymorphisms (LRRK2, VPS35, GBA, ATP13A2, ATP6AP2, DNAJC13/RME-8, RAB7L1, GAK) disrupt protein trafficking and degradation via the endosomal pathway and discussed how such defects could arise from or contribute to the accumulation and misfolding of α-synuclein in Lewy bodies.
Genetics of Parkinson's disease: the yield.
Lausanne, Switzerland. In Parkinsonism Relat Disord, 2014
Monogenic causes include autosomal dominantly (SNCA, LRRK2, VPS35, EIF4G1) as well as recessively (PARK2, PINK1, DJ-1) inherited mutations.
