Cerebral white matter lesions in patients with dementia – from MCI to severe Alzheimer's disease
Role for the microtubule-associated protein tau variant p.A152T in risk of α-synucleinopathies
The findings suggest that MAPT p.A152T is a rare low penetrance variant likely associated with DLB that may be influenced by coexisting LBD and AD pathology.
Cognitive impairment and BDNF serum levels.
Heterozygous PINK1 p.G411S increases risk of Parkinson’s disease via a dominant-negative mechanism
Based on genetic and clinical evaluation as well as functional and structural characterization, the p.G411S mutation interferes with ubiquitin phosphorylation by wild-type PINK1 in a heterodimeric complex and impairs the protective functions of the Pink1/parkin-mediated mitochondrial quality control.
Mitochondrial targeting sequence variants of the CHCHD2 gene are a risk for Lewy body disorders
Although the role of variants of the CHCHD2 gene in PD and LBD remains to be further elucidated, the rare variants in the mitochondrial targeting sequence may be a risk factor for Lewy body disorders, which may link CHCHd2 to other genetic forms of parkinsonism with mitochondrial dysfunction.
Parkinsonian syndrome in familial frontotemporal dementia.
Late-onset Alzheimer disease risk variants mark brain regulatory loci
The results suggest that some LOAD GWAS variants mark brain regulatory loci, nominate genes under regulation by LOAD risk variants, and annotate these variants for their brain regulatory effects.
(Patho‐)physiological relevance of PINK1‐dependent ubiquitin phosphorylation
It is shown that pS65‐Ub is reversible and barely detectable under basal conditions, but rapidly induced upon mitochondrial stress in cells and amplified in the presence of functional Parkin.

The paper presents a 24-year-old woman with right-sided peripheral facial nerve palsy and a history of left-sided episodes of facial nerves palsy, and magnetic resonance angiography of the cerebral vessels suggested compression of the right seventh and eighth cranial nerves by a vascular loop.
