LRRK2 Low-penetrance Mutations (Gly2019Ser) and Risk Alleles (Gly2385Arg)—Linking Familial and Sporadic Parkinson’s Disease

Abstract

The identification of mutations in the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) gene as a cause of autosomal dominant Parkinson’s disease (PD) was a major step forward in the genetic dissection of this disorder. However, what makes LRRK2 unique among the known PD-causing genes is that a low-penetrance mutation, Gly2019Ser, is a frequent determinant not only of… (More)
