OBJECTIVE A glutamatergic dysfunction has been postulated to play a role in restless legs syndrome (RLS) pathophysiology, as glutamate concentrations have been found to increase in the thalamus of RLS patients. The aim of our study was to investigate the possible association between the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs3794087 in the solute carrier(More)
Mutations in the microtubule-associated protein tau gene (MAPT) can cause frontotemporal dementia with Parkinsonism linked to the chromosome 17, and are associated with the risk for progressive supranuclear palsy, Parkinson's disease, corticobasal degeneration, and multiple system atrophy. We tried to establish, whether MAPT H1 discriminating haplotype(More)
Several biochemical, neuropathological, and experimental data suggest a possible role of nitric oxide (NO) in the pathophysiology of restless legs syndrome (RLS). Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS or NOS1) gene (rs7977109 and rs693534) have been found to be associated with the risk for RLS in Germans, although(More)
Several neurochemical, neuropathological, neuroimaging, and experimental data, suggest that iron deficiency plays an important role in the pathophysiology of restless legs syndrome (RLS). Heme-oxygenases (HMOX) are an important defensive mechanism against oxidative stress, mainly through the degradation of heme to biliverdin, free iron, and carbon monoxide.(More)
A recent meta-analysis suggests an association between the rs11558538 single nucleotide polymorphism in the histamine-N-methyl-transferase (HNMT) gene and the risk for Parkinson’s disease. Based on the possible relationship between PD and restless legs syndrome (RLS), we tried to establish whether rs11558538 SNP is associated with the risk for RLS. We(More)
Several recent works suggest a possible role of vitamin D deficiency in the etiology or restless legs syndrome (RLS). We analyzed the possible relationship of 2 common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the vitamin D3 receptor (VDR) gene with the risk for RLS.We studied the genotype and allelic variant frequencies of VDR rs2228570 and VDR rs731236(More)
