Recently, a meta-analysis including 5 large genome-wide association studies has identified rs12456492 variant of RIT2 gene as a novel risk locus for Parkinson's disease (PD) in Caucasian populations. However, the association between RIT2 polymorphism and PD risk has not been positively replicated in Asian population yet. We detected the genotypes of(More)
Recent studies have reported that a rare nonsynonymous variant rs75932628-T in the TREM2 gene is associated with increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease (PD) in European-descended populations. However, the association between rare TREM2 mutations and PD risk remains unknown in Chinese population. We directly sequenced exon2 of TREM2 in(More)
