NOD2 gene implicated in MS as well as IBD

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21625457

It's a bit sciencey but I think the gist is that one of the variations on the NOD2 gene can lead to T-helper cells responding differently to myelin (myelin 'insulates' the brain cells and it is loss of myelin that causes symptoms of MS).
