Several genome-wide association studies and case-control studies have investigated the relationships between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the BST1 gene and Parkinson's disease (PD), but the results have been inconsistent. We examined the relationships between SNPs rs11931532, rs12645693, and rs11724635 and the risk of sporadic PD in Japan. Included were 229 cases within 6years of onset of PD as defined according to the UK PD Society Brain Bank clinical diagnostic criteria. Controls were 357 inpatients and outpatients without neurodegenerative disease. SNPs rs11931532 and rs12645693 were not significantly related to sporadic PD. Compared with a reference group of subjects with the CC genotype of SNP rs11724635, those with the AA genotype had a marginally significantly increased risk of sporadic PD: the adjusted OR was 1.57 (95% CI: 0.95-2.61, P=0.08). No significant interactions were found between BST1 SNP rs11724635 and smoking or caffeine intake with respect to sporadic PD. The current study failed to detect significant relationships between BST1 SNPs rs11931532, rs12645693, and rs11724635 and sporadic PD; however, the relationship between SNP rs11724635 and sporadic PD was of borderline significance. We do not find evidence for interactions between smoking or caffeine intake and SNP rs11724635 affecting sporadic PD.
