Association between genetic variants of the reelin (RELN) gene and the risk for developing Alzheimer's disease (AD) was examined in a sample of 432 patients and 308 controls. Single marker and haplotype analyses revealed that the strongly linked rs528528 and rs607755 polymorphisms are associated with AD risk in a gender specific manner. Among men, but not in women the rs528528 T/T and rs607755 A/A genotypes were significantly associated with the susceptibility to AD.
