According to one of the theories behind RLS, it's tied to a variation of the gene BTBD9, found in flies, but called dBTBD9. Scientists engineered flies to lack this gene and the insects were hit by a version of the syndrome. They moved more, and lost sleep. Which is one of the key complaints about RLS.
