PA R K I N SO N ’S DI S E AS E Guilt by genetic association Certain sequence variants of the α-synuclein gene are linked to the risk of Parkinson’s disease. An analysis of these variants using gene-editing technology provides a possible explanation for this increased risk. 95 ASA ABELIOVICH & HERVE RHINN G enome-wide association studies have identified swathes of the human genome in which DNA sequence changes are associated with an altered likelihood that an individual will develop a given disorder, such as Parkinson’s disease1.
Identify the true culprit or culprits using genetic association studies alone. For this reason, although multiple variants in SNCA, the gene that encodes α-synuclein, have been associated with an increased lifetime risk of Parkinson’s disease2, the mechanisms by which they alter risk have remained enigmatic. 3 have turned to the sophisticated gene-editing technique CRISPR–Cas9. On page 95 of this issue, they report that one sequence variant increases SNCA expression in human neurons by reducing DNA binding NEWS & VIEWS RESEARCH of proteins that inhibit transcription.
