Gene variant role in Parkinson's uncovered


A TINY, gene-regulating snippet of RNA may play a role in Parkinson’s disease. Bingwei Lu, a neuroscientist at Stanford University in California, has shown that a microRNA sequence which suppresses certain genes is linked to the death of brain cells in fruit flies. Lu and his team studied a gene called LRRK2. A mutant form of LRRK2, common in Jews of European descent and people from north Africa, is known to be involved in the development of Parkinson’s,
