Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative movement disorder that is characterized by motor symptoms such as tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement and problems with gait. Large-scale meta-analyses of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified few susceptibility loci in patients with sporadic PD. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between NMD3 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and symptoms in PD patients in South China. A total of 217 PD… 

MicroRNA-185 activates PI3K/AKT signalling pathway to alleviate dopaminergic neuron damage via targeting IGF1 in Parkinson’s disease

It is illustrated that miR-185 ameliorates dopaminergic neuron damage via targeting IGF1 and activating PI3K/AKT signaling pathway in PD, which renews the therapy for PD.

Association of GBA Mutations and the E326K Polymorphism With Motor and Cognitive Progression in Parkinson Disease.

GBA variants predict a more rapid progression of cognitive dysfunction and motor symptoms in patients with PD, with a greater effect on PIGD than tremor, and influence the heterogeneity in symptom progression observed in PD.

Association of Parkinson disease risk loci with mild parkinsonian signs in older persons.

The results support a broader role for several loci in the development of parkinsonian motor signs and nigral pathology in older persons.

Determining the Effect of the HNMT, STK39, and NMD3 Polymorphisms on the Incidence of Parkinson’s Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, and Multiple System Atrophy in Chinese Populations

Large-scale meta-analyses of genome-wide association studies have identified several loci linked to sporadic Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, the roles of some important loci, such as HNMT

Etiology of Parkinson's disease: Genetics and environment revisited

It is conclusively demonstrated that targeted disruption of the α-synuclein gene confers specific resistance of dopaminergic neurons to the toxic effects of MPP+ or MPTP in vitro and in vivo.

Common genetic variation in the HLA region is associated with late-onset sporadic Parkinson’s disease

The genome-wide association study of 2,000 individuals with Parkinson's disease and unaffected controls confirmed associations with SNCA and MAPT and detected a new association with the HLA region, which was uniform across all genetic and environmental risk strata and was strong in sporadic and late-onset disease.

The Parkinson Disease gene SNCA: Evolutionary and structural insights with pathological implication

Evidence is provided that the region from 32 to 58 of N-terminal lipid binding alpha helix domain of SNCA is the most critical region, not only from the evolutionary perspective but also for the stability and the proper conformation of the protein as well as crucial for the disease pathogenesis, harboring critical interaction sites.

The Movement Disorder Society PD Criteria retain motor parkinsonism as the core feature of the disease, defined as bradykinesia plus rest tremor or rigidity, and two levels of certainty are delineated: clinically established PD and probable PD.

The combined clinimetric results of this study support the validity of the MDS‐UPDRS for rating PD.

Systematic review of the prevalence and incidence of Parkinson’s disease in the People’s Republic of China

The prevalence and incidence of PD in the People’s Republic of China has been widely investigated in the studies published to date, however, due to methodological heterogeneity, the data reported by the different studies are not comparable.
