26334395 The current meta-analysis suggested that rs12456492 might be associated with increased PD risk in Asian populations, but studies using larger sample sizes and different ethnic populations will be needed to further confirm this association.
26188085 the G allele, GG and GA genotype of rs12456492(A/G) polymorphism may increase the risk of Parkinson disease. [meta-analysis]
25559334 performed a case-control replication study in this population and investigated RIT2 rs12456492 variant in a large cohort of Chinese Han individuals
25534083 The data of this study suggested that the RIT2 polymorphisms are associated with Parkinson disease etiology.
25457028 Its polymorphism is associated with Parkinson's disease in a Han Chinese population.
25146456 findings increase the likelihood of association between Parkinson's disease and RIT2 variant in Asian populations
23805044 These studies confirm the expression of RIT2 in retinal neuronal cells.
23635658 failed to replicate the RIT2 rs12456492 variant as a genetic risk factor for Parkinson's disease in our population.
22451204 This meta-analysis identifies a novel Parkinson's disease locus, RIT2, that replicates several previously identified loci on chromosome 18.
21957239 Rin interacts directly with dopamine transporter DAT in a protein kinase (PK)C-regulated manner and is required for PKC-mediated DAT internalization.
