When telephone lines go down, or Internet connections are lost, our communities temporarily come to a halt. What if something similar were found to be happening in Parkinson's? This is the focus of Dr. Schmitz and her team at the PDF Research Center at Columbia University Medical Center.

Exome sequencing in a large essential tremor (ET) family identified a novel nonsense mutation (p.Q290X) in the fused in sarcoma gene (FUS) as the cause of this family. Because of the clinical overlap between ET and Parkinson's disease (PD), the role of FUS in an independent cohort of PD patients from China mainland was evaluated.
