New Analysis Reveals Gene Activity That May Underlie Parkinson’s

Studies on twins and families have suggested that susceptibility to Parkinson’s disease has a substantial genetic component. Now, an analysis of gene activity in different brain tissues has identified gene candidates that may be directly involved in causing the neurodegenerative disorder. The study, “A transcriptome-wide association study identifies susceptibility genes for Parkinson’s disease,” was published in the journal NPJ Parkinson’s Disease. One method to identify genetic risk factors is a genome-wide association study or GWAS, which…
