Heterozygous rare variants in TREM2 are associated with a significant increase in the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
alpha-Synuclein locus triplication causes Parkinson's disease.
Cloning of the Gene Containing Mutations that Cause PARK8-Linked Parkinson's Disease
Genome-wide association study identifies variants at CLU and PICALM associated with Alzheimer's disease
A two-stage genome-wide association study of Alzheimer's disease involving over 16,000 individuals found strong evidence for association to APOE, and observed more variants associated at p< 1×10 − 5 than expected by chance.
New genetic loci implicated in fasting glucose homeostasis and their impact on type 2 diabetes risk
It is demonstrated that genetic studies of glycemic traits can identify type 2 diabetes risk loci, as well as loci containing gene variants that are associated with a modest elevation in glucose levels but are not associated with overt diabetes.
Common variants in ABCA7, MS4A6A/MS4A4E, EPHA1, CD33 and CD2AP are associated with Alzheimer’s disease
Meta-analyses of all data provided compelling evidence that ABCA7 and the MS4A gene cluster are new Alzheimer's disease susceptibility loci and independent evidence for association for three loci reported by the ADGC, which, when combined, showed genome-wide significance.
Letter abstract - Genome-wide association study identifies variants at CLU and PICALM associated with Alzheimer's Disease
A two-stage genome-wide association study of Alzheimer's disease involving over 16,000 individuals, the most powerful AD GWAS to date, produced compelling evidence for association with Alzheimer's Disease in the combined dataset.
Genome-Wide Association Study reveals genetic risk underlying Parkinson’s disease
It is demonstrated that an unequivocal role for common genetic variants in the etiology of typical PD and population-specific genetic heterogeneity in this disease is suggested, and supporting evidence that common variation around LRRK2 modulates risk for PD is provided.
Rare Structural Variants Disrupt Multiple Genes in Neurodevelopmental Pathways in Schizophrenia
The results suggest that multiple, individually rare mutations altering genes in neurodevelopmental pathways contribute to schizophrenia, and disrupted genes disproportionately from signaling networks controlling neurodevelopment, including neuregulin and glutamate pathways.
Large-scale meta-analysis of genome-wide association data identifies six new risk loci for Parkinson’s disease
A meta-analysis of Parkinson's disease genome-wide association studies using a common set of 7,893,274 variants found four loci, including GBA, GAK-DGKQ, SNCA and the HLA region, contain a secondary independent risk variant.
