Genome-wide scan for Parkinson's disease: the GenePD Study.

Department of Neurology, Boston University Schools of Medicine and of Public Health, Boston, MA 02118, USA.


A genome-wide scan for idiopathic PD in a sample of 113 PD-affected sibling pairs is reported. Suggestive evidence for linkage was found for chromosomes 1 (214 cM, lod = 1.20), 9 (136 cM, lod = 1.30), 10 (88 cM, lod = 1.07), and 16 (114 cM, lod = 0.93). The chromosome 9 region overlaps the genes for dopamine beta-hydroxylase and torsion dystonia. Although no strong evidence for linkage was found for any locus, these results may be of value in comparison with similar studies by others.
