    Abstract : In linkage analysis or, in a wider sense, gene mapping one searches for disease loci along a genome. This is done by observing so called marker genotypes (alleles) and phenotypes (affecteds/unaffecteds) of a pedigree set, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic studies of stroke in Northern Sweden

    Author : Sofie Nilsson Ardnor; Dan Holmberg; Jan Hillert; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; linkage; genome wide scan; susceptibility loci; association; candidade gene; PDE4D; PIK3R1; extended pedigree; Medical genetics; Medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Stroke is a common disorder of later life with a complex etiology, including both environmental and genetic risk factors. The inherited predisposition is challenging to study due to the complexity of the stroke phenotype. READ MORE

  4. 4. Association studies on susceptibility genes in Alzheimer disease

    Author : Behnosh Fakhri Björk; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Our results support the involvement of genetic variants in IDE; TFAM and COL25A1 in AD cases from Sweden; whereas; it does not for PITRM1.;

    Abstract : Alzheimer disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia in the elderly. Due to the complexity of AD, it has been difficult to find genetic risk factors predisposing to disease. To date, three genes (APP, PSEN1 and PSEN2) with disease causing genetic variants have been reported for the rare early onset monogenic forms of AD. READ MORE
