BACKGROUND Mutations in GBA and LRRK2 genes have been implicated in Parkinson disease (PD), particularly in Ashkenazi Jews. METHODS An Israeli Ashkenazi cohort of 420 patients with PD, 333 elderly controls, and 3,805 young controls was screened for eight GBA mutations, which are associated with mild (N370S, R496H) and severe (84GG, IVS2 + 1, V394L, D409H, L444P, RecTL) Gaucher disease. Patients with PD and elderly controls were also genotyped for LRRK2 G2019S. RESULTS GBA carrier frequency… CONTINUE READING
