Our genetic knowledge of Parkinson’s disease (PD) is moving forward at an impressive speed. In less than 10 years, family-based linkage analysis and positional cloning have led to the identification of several genes for autosomal recessive PD [PARKIN (1), DJ-1 (2), and PINK-1 (3)], autosomal dominant PD, [a-synuclein (4), UCHL1 (5), NR4A2 (6), and LRRK2 (7,8)] and a number of potential genetic risk factors for idiopathic PD (9).
