Actual causes of Parkinson's disease (PD) are still unknown. In any case, a better comprehension of genetic and ecological influences to the PD and their interaction will assist physicians and patients to evaluate individual hazard for the PD, and definitely, there will be a possibility to find a way to reduce the progression of the PD. We introduced quantitative frameworks to reveal the complex relationship of various biasing genetic factors for the PD. In this study, we analyzed gene expression microarray data from the PD, ageing (AG), severe alcohol consumption (AC), type II diabetes (T2D), high body fat (HBF), hypercholesterolemia (HC), high dietary fat (HDF), red meat dietary (RMD), sedentary lifestyle (SL), smoking (SM), and control datasets. We have developed genetic associations of various factors with the PD based on the neighbourhood-based benchmarking and multilayer network topology. We identified 1343 significantly dysregulated genes in the PD patients compared to the healthy control, where we have 779 genes down-regulated and 544 genes up-regulated. 69 genes were highly expressed in both for the PD and alcohol consumption whereas the number of shared genes for the PD and the type II diabetes is 51. However, the PD ...Continue Reading
