LRRK2 is one of the most important genetic contributors to Parkinson's disease (PD). Point mutations in this gene cause an autosomal dominant form of PD, but to date no cellular phenotype has been consistently linked with mutations in each of the functional domains (ROC, COR and Kinase) of the protein product of this gene. In this study, primary fibroblasts(More)
A hexanucleotide (G4C2) repeat expansion in the 5' non-coding region C9orf72 is the most common genetic cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal lobar degeneration. Three modes of toxicity have been proposed: gain of function through formation of RNA foci and sequestration of RNA binding proteins; expression of dipeptide repeat proteins(More)
