Association between GRN rs5848 Polymorphism and Parkinson′s Disease in Taiwanese Population


A single nucleotide polymorphism GRN rs5848 (3'UTR+78 C>T) was reported to alter the risk for frontotemporal lobar degeneration. Herein, we investigated the effect of GRN rs5848 on the risk of Parkinson's disease (PD) by genotyping 573 Taiwanese patients with PD and 490 age-matched control subjects. Compared to subjects with CC genotype, those with TT… (More)
