Periventricular heterotopia (PH) is characterized by neuronal nodules along the lateral ventricles. Whereas mutations in X-linked FLNA cause such cortical malformations, the authors report two cases of PH localizing to chromosome 5p. Both subjects have complex partial seizures. MRI demonstrated bilateral nodular PH, with subcortical heterotopia or focal(More)
INTRODUCTION We recently showed that tagging single-nucleotide polymorphisms across the SNCA locus were significantly associated with increased risk for Lewy body (LB) pathology in Alzheimer's disease (AD) cases. However, the actual genetic variant(s) that underlie the observed associations remain elusive. METHODS We used a bioinformatics algorithm to(More)
The increase in bare patch of cereals associated with minimum tillage practices prompted an investigation of the relationship between soil compaction and saprophytic growth of Rhizoctonia solani. In soils wetter than 10 kPa there was a greater density of hyphae in compacted than in non-compacted soil. In relatively dry soil, however, there was wider(More)
INTRODUCTION The α-synuclein (SNCA) gene has been implicated in the etiology of Parkinson's disease (PD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). METHODS A computational analysis of SNCA 3' untranslated region to identify potential microRNA (miRNA) binding sites and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to determine their expression in(More)
The SNCA intronic single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs356168, has been associated with Parkinson's disease (PD) in large genome wide association studies (GWAS). Recently, the PD-risk allele, rs356168-G was shown to increase SNCA-mRNA expression using genome edited human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC)-derived neurons. In this study, as means of(More)
