The molecular genetic basis that leads to Lewy Body (LB) pathology in 15-20% of Alzheimer disease cases (LBV/AD) was largely unknown. Alpha-synuclein (SNCA) and Leucine-rich repeat kinase2 (LRRK2) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD), the prototype of LB spectrum disorders. We tested the association of SNCA variants with LB(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the genomic region spanning the Translocase of the Outer Mitochondrial Membrane 40-kD (TOMM40) and Apolipoprotein E (APOE) genes, that has been associated with the risk and age of onset of late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) to determine whether a highly polymorphic, intronic poly-T within this region (rs10524523; hereafter,(More)
2073 Background: Although pediatric and adult ependymomas are associated with significant mortality and morbidity, little is known about the biology of these tumors. To identify underlying genetic alterations and cellular pathways that drive this disease, we conducted a genomic study of 200 adult and pediatric ependymomas. METHODS Using 500k single(More)
