Frequency of the ASP620ASN mutation in VPS35 and Arg1205His mutation in EIF4G1 in familial Parkinson's disease from South Italy.


Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta. This degeneration leads to bradykinesia, muscular rigidity, resting tremor, and postural instability. It affects 1%-2% of the population above the age of 60 years.
