Abstract: We conducted a replication study of the 2 genetic variants, rs11754661 and rs2073067, in MTHFD1L that have been recently reported to be associated with late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) in a genome-wide study in Caucasians. The associations were evaluated in a case-control sample comprising 1,189 Northern Han-Chinese individuals. The rs11754661 polymorphism is associated with LOAD (OR = 1.727; p = 0.016). For rs2073067, LOAD association was found only in APOEε4 carriers (OR = 0.400; p < 0.001). Haplotype a…
