Washington, July 22 (ANI): In an international study led by Mayo Clinic scientists, researchers have discovered the first mutated gene, called MEIS1, which is linked to restless legs syndrome, a common neurologic disorder.
The researchers have said that a large proportion of the millions of people who suffer from the syndrome have this mutated MEIS1 gene.
While common variants (different versions) of MEIS1 and BTBD9, another associated gene, have been found in families with a high incidence of restless legs syndrome, Vilarino-Guell said that it is not clear that those variants are capable of causing disease.
