Recent discovery of pathogenic mutations in the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) gene in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients in different ethnic groups have raised a hope of diagnostic screening and genetic counseling. We investigated the six most commonly reported mutations in LRRK2 gene among Indian PD patients, using PCR-RFLP method. Mutations G2019S, R1441C, R1441G, and R1441H were screened in 1012 individuals (PD, 800; controls, 212) while mutations I2012T and I2020T were screened in 748 PD patients. We did not observe any of these six mutations in this study sample except in a single female young onset PD patient who showed a heterozygous G2019S mutation. The absence of mutations was reconfirmed by sequencing of probands from several autosomal dominant PD families. Our observations suggest that these mutations may be a rare cause of PD among Indians and therefore of little help for diagnostic screening and genetic counseling for Indian PD patients.
