Human postmortem putamen tissues from 12 patients with PD symptoms and 12 neurologically normal controls were used in the study. Samples were obtained from the Human Brain and Spinal Fluid Resource Center, Los Angeles, CA through NIH NeuroBioBank, and stored at -80°C until RNA isolation. Total RNA was extracted using the mirVana RNA isolation kit, following the manufacturer’s instructions (Ambion). Using 225ng total RNA, mRNA levels were assayed by direct digital detection using Nanostring nCounter assay kits (Nanostring Technologies).
