NR4A2 genetic variation in sporadic Parkinson's disease: A genewide approach



The NR4A2 gene, which may cause autosomal dominant Parkinson's disease (PD), has also been reported to be a susceptibility factor for sporadic PD. Here, we use a haplotype-tagging approach in 802 PD patients and 784 controls and demonstrate that common genetic variation, including NR4A2 haplotypes, does not influence the risk of PD in the Caucasian population. © 2006 Movement Disorder Society
