Parkinson Disease Mutation Database
The Parkinson Disease Mutation Database (PDmutDB) aims at collecting all known mutations and non-pathogenic coding variations in the genes related to Parkinson disease (PD).
The database is updated continuously and contains mutations reported in the literature and at scientific meetings, and unpublished mutations directly submitted to the database. To date, PDmutDB contains mutations in the genes encoding α-synuclein (SNCA), Leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2), Parkin (PARK2), PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1) and DJ-1 (PARK7), and holds information on 535 different DNA variations and 2084 families.
Patients and their relatives can find informative web sites in the links section. Also, links for other target groups including caregivers, physicians and researchers are listed.
PDmutDB is curated by Karen Nuytemans.
