Screening for VPS35 mutations in Parkinson's disease

Identification of VPS35 mutations replicated in French families with Parkinson disease

A heterozygous missense mutation is found in the vacuolar protein sorting 35 ortholog gene associated with autosomal dominant late-onset Parkinson disease and the associated phenotypes are analyzed.

A multi-centre clinico-genetic analysis of the VPS35 gene in Parkinson disease indicates reduced penetrance for disease-associated variants

This study performed the largest multi-center study to ascertain the frequency and pathogenicity of the reported vacuolar protein sorting 35 gene variants in more than 15,000 individuals worldwide and identified the p.Asp620Asn variant in familial cases and identified it in idiopathic Parkinson disease cases.

The Asp620asn mutation in VPS35 is not a common cause of familial Parkinson's disease

To elucidate the relevance and frequency of the VPS35 p.Asp620Asn mutation in familial PD, an Italian PD cohort collected by the Biobank of the Parkinson Institute of Milan was screened for this variant.

VPS35 mutation in Japanese patients with typical Parkinson's disease

Based on the clinical features, VPS35 should be analyzed in patients with PD, especially autosomal dominant PD or tremor‐predominant PD, and the frequency of such mutation is relatively higher in Japanese than reported in other populations.

The RAB39B p.G192R mutation causes X-linked dominant Parkinson’s disease

The findings implicate RAB39B, an essential regulator of vesicular-trafficking, in clinically typical PD, in multi-incident U.S. kindred with Parkinson’s disease (PD).

Title The RAB 39 B p . G 192 R mutation causes X-linked dominant Parkinson ' s disease Permalink

The findings implicate RAB39B, an essential regulator of vesicular-trafficking, in clinically typical PD and may elucidate important mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in PD and related disorders.

EIF4G1 in familial Parkinson's disease: pathogenic mutations or rare benign variants?

Rare Variants in PLXNA4 and Parkinson’s Disease

Although it cannot conclude that the variant in PLXNA4 is indeed the causative variant, these findings are interesting in the light of a surfacing role of axonal guidance mechanisms in neurodegenerative disorders but, at the same time, highlight the difficulties encountered in the study of rare variants identified by next-generation sequencing in diseases with autosomal dominant or complex patterns of inheritance.

Hunting for Familial Parkinson’s Disease Mutations in the Post Genome Era

The evidence presented here is not sufficient to assign causality to these rare variants, it does provide novel candidates for hypothesis testing in other modestly sized families with a strong family history, and future analysis will include characterisation of functional consequences and assessment of carriers in other familial cases.

Mutations in the newly identified gene appear to be responsible for the pathogenesis of Autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism, and the protein product is named ‘Parkin’.

The identification of two homozygous mutations affecting the PINK1 kinase domain in three consanguineous PARK6 families provide a direct molecular link between mitochondria and the pathogenesis of PD.

Mutation in the α-Synuclein Gene Identified in Families with Parkinson's Disease

A mutation was identified in the α-synuclein gene, which codes for a presynaptic protein thought to be involved in neuronal plasticity, in the Italian kindred and in three unrelated families of Greek origin with autosomal dominant inheritance for the PD phenotype.
