BACKGROUND Hereditary spastic paraplegia type 6 (SPG6) is caused by mutations in the NIPA1 gene, this is a rare cause of HSP, until now, all the affected individuals reported displayed "pure" spastic paraplegia. OBJECTIVES To analyze the genotype/phenotype correlation of mutations so far described in NIPA1. METHODS Eighty-six Chinese Han HSP patients(More)
It has been reported that some single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with the risk of Parkinson's disease (PD), but whether a combination of these SNPs would have a stronger association with PD than any individual SNP is unknown. Sixteen SNPs located in the 8 genes and/or loci (SNCA, LRRK2, MAPT, GBA, HLA-DR, BST1, PARK16, and PARK17) were(More)
The Grb10-interacting GYF protein-2 gene (GIGYF2) is a PARK11 gene that reportedly has a causal role in familial Parkinson’s disease (PD) among populations from Italy and France. However, no comprehensive study of the GIGYF2 gene has been conducted among PD patients from mainland China. In our previous study, the GIGYF2 gene was directly sequenced, and nine(More)
Rasagiline, a novel monoamine oxidase (MAO)-B inhibitor, has a mild to moderate effect in relieving Parkinson's disease (PD) symptoms as well as unique neuroprotective effects. Previous studies demonstrated rasagiline protect neurons by regulating Bcl-2 family proteins. Our study aimed to study whether Bcl-2-associated athanogene (BAG)-family proteins,(More)
