Mutations in the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) gene represent the most common known genetic cause of inherited and idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) in different populations. The predicted multifunctionality of LRRK2 product and the pleomorphic pathology associated with LRRK2 mutations place this gene as a potential candidate for other(More)

We isolated East/Central/South African genotype chikungunya virus during the 2016 epidemic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Genome sequencing revealed unique mutations in the nonstructural protein 4 (NSP4-A481D) and envelope protein 1 (E1-K211T). Moreover, all Brazil East/Central/South isolates shared the exclusive mutations E1-M407L and E2-A103T.
