Genetic association study of the P-type ATPase ATP13A2 in late-onset Parkinson's disease. Movement Disorders, 24(3):429-433.
A role of ATP13A2 in early-onset Parkinsonism (EOP) has been proposed. Conversely, the contribution of this ATPase to late-onset Parkinson's disease (PD) remains unexplored. We therefore conducted a case-control association study in this age-of-onset group with PD. The initial sample was of German origin and consisted of 220 patients with late-onset PD (mean age of onset 60.1 years) and 232 age-matched unrelated controls. Five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) covering ATP13A2 and its common haplotypes were genotyped. The overall association results in this sample were negative. Interestingly, gender stratification gave a positive result for SNP rs11203280 (P(UNC) = 0.016) in men. This result could not be reproduced in a replication sample of German and Serbian origin composed of 161 patients with late-onset PD (mean age of onset 51.7 years) and 150 age- and ethnic-matched controls. In conclusion, we found no consistent evidence for an association between ATP13A2 and late-onset PD.
