Discovery and functional prioritization of Parkinson’s disease candidate genes from large scale whole exome sequencing

Genome Biol
PMCID: 5282828
PMID: 28137300
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-017-1147-9

[…] p PD, next to the identified LoF variants with assumed high penetrance, we searched for GWAS loci within 1 Mb upstream and downstream of the gene of interest using the recent PD meta-analysis through pdgene.org []. Significant associations and suggestive p values < 1e-4 were considered. To understand the underlying linkage disequilibrium structure, LocusZoom [] was applied to visualize the Europea […]


Enrichment of risk SNPs in regulatory regions implicate diverse tissues in Parkinson’s disease etiology

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4962314
PMID: 27461410

[…] Twenty-six index SNPs associated with PD were downloaded from http://www.pdgene.org/top_results. Five SNPs were removed from further analysis. Rs17649553 was removed because it was in an assembly exception. Rs11060180, rs34311866, rs356182 and rs62120679 were removed becau […]

Towards a pathway definition of Parkinson’s disease: a complex disorder with links to cancer, diabetes and inflammation

PMCID: 2238789
PMID: 18196299
DOI: 10.1007/s10048-007-0116-y

[…] ResNet database, respectively, that was obtained via NetAffx (http://www.affymetrix.com/analysis/index.affx). Thirty-one priority genes have been previously designated PD candidate genes (http://www.pdgene.org/) (SI_Table_1f), and it is worth noting that 33 are considered AD candidate genes as well (SI_Table_1g) with HSPA1A, HSPA1B, HTR2A, KCNJ6, SLC6A3, SNCA, SNCG, TF and UCHL1 being present in […]
