Analysis of LRRK2, SNCA, and ITGA8 Gene Variants with Sporadic Parkinson’s Disease Susceptibility in Chinese Han Population

Background. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is an age-related neurodegenerative disease affected by multiple genetic and environmental factors. We performed a case-control study on candidate gene to scrutinize whether genetic variants in LRRK2, SNCA, and ITGA8 genes could be associated with sporadic PD in Chinese Han population. Methods. Five single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of...

Case-control study of GRIA1 and GRIA3 gene variants in migraine

Background As the most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, glutamate has been accepted to play a major role in the pathophysiology of migraine. The previous studies have reported the glutamate receptor ionotropic GRIA1 and GRIA3 genes variants associated with migraine. The project aims to investigate the polymorphisms in both genes for their...

P268S in NOD2 associates with susceptibility to Parkinson’s disease in Chinese population

Background The cause of almost all cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD) remains unknown. Recent years have seen an explosion in the rate of discovery of genetic defects linked to PD. Different racial and geographical populations may have different distributions of genetic variants. Methods In the current study, we screened the following genetic variants, including some rare...
