A clinic-based study of the LRRK2 gene in Parkinson disease yields new mutations.


Referral-based studies indicate that a mutation (G2019S) in exon 41 of the LRRK2 gene might be a common cause of Parkinson disease (PD). The authors sequenced leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) exons 31, 35, and 41 in 371 consecutively recruited patients with PD and found mutations in six (1.6%) subjects, including two heterozygous for new putative… (More)
