Interpreting Genetic Variants: Hints from a Family Cluster of Parkinson's Disease.
TLDR
A patient with Parkinson's disease and a family history of disease were analyzed and a new missense variant in the SNCA gene was identified, which may help clinicians and researchers in questioning the causative role of genetic variants within the daily clinical and diagnostic settings.
Clinical Manifestations and Molecular Backgrounds of Parkinson's Disease Regarding Genes Identified From Familial and Population Studies
TLDR
This review summarizes the current knowledge on familial PD genes detected by both single-gene analyses obeying the Mendelian inheritance and meta-analyses of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) from genome libraries of PD.
Profiling Non-motor Symptoms in Monogenic Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
The characteristics, clinical phenotypes, especially the NMS of monogenic PD patients carrying mutations of SNCA, LRRK2, VPS35, Parkin, PINK1, DJ-1, and GBA are summarized and linkage between NMS and PD-related genes are discussed.
Animal Models of Autosomal Recessive Parkinsonism
TLDR
The current status of PD modeling using mouse, rat and non-mammalian models is outlined, focusing on animal models for autosomal recessive PD.
A More Homogeneous Phenotype in Parkinson's Disease Related to R1441G Mutation in the LRRK2 Gene
TLDR
The aim of the research is to examine the clinical phenotype of R1441G-PD patients, more homogeneous when it is compared with sporadic PD patients or with patients carrying other LRRK2 mutations, and reflect on the value of the observed correlation in the genetic forms of PD.
Analysis of genetic risk factors in Japanese patients with Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
In Japanese patients with PD, PRKN, and L RRK2 were the major PD-related genes and LRRK2 was a common genetic factor in all age groups because of the presence of the Asian-specific variant such as LRRk2 p.G2385R.
Genetic Analysis and Literature Review of SNCA Variants in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the variants in the exons of the SNCA gene may have less or no role in the development of PD in the Han Chinese populations.

The genetic background of Parkinson's disease: current progress and future prospects
TLDR
The advent of genome‐wide association studies (GWAS) and the implementation of new technologies, like next generation sequencing (NGS) and exome sequencing has undoubtedly greatly aided the identification on novel risk variants for sporadic PD.
Parkinson's disease: from monogenic forms to genetic susceptibility factors.
TLDR
Genome-wide associations and re-sequencing projects, together with gene-environment interaction studies, are expected to further define the causal role of genetic determinants in the pathogenesis of PD, and improve prevention and treatment.
What genetics tells us about the causes and mechanisms of Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
An impressive set of data in different model systems strongly suggest that mitochondrial dysfunction plays a central role in clinically similar, early-onset autosomal recessive PD forms caused by parkin and PINK1, and possibly DJ-1 gene mutations.
Genetic variants and animal models in SNCA and Parkinson disease
A susceptibility locus for Parkinson's disease maps to chromosome 2p13
TLDR
A different genetic locus that appears to be involved in the development of parkinsonism closely resembling sporadic PD is described including a similar mean age of onset (59 years in the families, 59.7 years in sporadic PD; ref. 12).
Identification of TMEM230 mutations in familial Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
This work reports a locus for autosomal dominant, clinically typical and Lewy body–confirmed Parkinson's disease on the short arm of chromosome 20 (20pter-p12) and identifies TMEM230 as the disease-causing gene and shows that it encodes a transmembrane protein of secretory/recycling vesicles, including synaptic vesicle trafficking in neurons.
Genetic risk factors for cognitive decline in Parkinson's disease: a review of the literature
TLDR
Linking genetic profiles to cognitive outcomes may have an important clinical impact, facilitating the stratification of patients for clinical trials and, ultimately, individualized treatment in Parkinson's disease.
Significant linkage of Parkinson disease to chromosome 2q36-37.
TLDR
This work has expanded the sample to include 150 families meeting the strictest diagnostic definition of verified PD, and performs analyses using only those pedigrees with the strongest family history of PD, which strongly suggests that variation in a gene on chromosome 2q36-37 contributes to PD susceptibility.
Hereditary Early-Onset Parkinson's Disease Caused by Mutations in PINK1
TLDR
The identification of two homozygous mutations affecting the PINK1 kinase domain in three consanguineous PARK6 families provide a direct molecular link between mitochondria and the pathogenesis of PD.
