A Novel Locus for Restless Legs Syndrome on Chromosome 13q
European Neurology, 07/17/2012
Balaban H et al. – The authors demonstrated a genetic linkage at chromosome 13 in a Restless legs syndrome (RLS) family. Further investigation in this linkage area may reveal a causative gene leading to RLS phenotype and may illuminate the pathogenesis of this disease. This study supports the genetic heterogeneity in the pathogenesis of this syndrome.
