VPS35 gene mutation has recently been reported in autosomal-dominant, late-onset Parkinson disease (PD). There are no reports regarding the association between VPS35 and Parkinson's disease (PD) in the Chinese population. We conducted a comprehensive genetic analysis of VPS35 gene in a cohort of twenty seven probands belonging to families with(More)
Autosomal dorminant Parkinson's disease (ADPD) has been associated with mutations in the SCNA, LRRK2, UCHL1, HtrA2 and GIGYF2 genes. We studied the prevalence of variants in all five genes in 12 Chinese unrelated families with ADPD and 4 families with both essential tremor (ET) and Parkinson's disease (PD) phenotypes using direct sequencing analysis. We(More)
Recent studies have shown that PLA2G6 is a causative gene for PARK14-linked autosomal recessive early-onset complicated dystonia-parkinsonism, early-onset parkinsonism with frontotemporal dementia and autosomal recessive early-onset Parkinsonism without added complicated clinical features. In order to investigate the characteristics of PLA2G6 gene mutations(More)
Dopa-responsive dystonia, a rare disorder typically presenting in early childhood with lower limb dystonia and gait abnormality, responds well to levodopa. However, it is often misdiagnosed with the wide spectrum of phenotypes. By exome sequencing, we make a rapid genetic diagnosis for two atypical dopa-responsive dystonia pedigrees. One pedigree, presented(More)
