An allelic association study of monoamine oxidase B in Parkinson's disease

Ann Neurol. 1995 Mar;37(3):403-5. doi: 10.1002/ana.410370318.


A single-stranded conformational polymorphism in the monoamine oxidase B gene was shown to be A or G, 36 bases upstream from the intron 13-exon 14 boundary. An allelic association study revealed no statistically significant associations between this single-base polymorphism and Parkinson's disease, unlike the results of a previous study.
