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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
