Association of BDNF Met66Met polymorphism with arm tremor in cervical dystonia.

Abstract

Cervical dystonia (CD) may be accompanied by a bilateral postural tremor of the arms. The mechanisms leading to dystonia and tremor are not clear; aberrant neuroplasticity may, however, play a role. The brainderived neurotrophic factor (BDNF, OMIM #113505) is involved in neuroplasticity modulation. A functional polymorphism Val66Met (rs6265) in BDNF has… (More)
