Phenotypic Heterogeneity of Monogenic Frontotemporal Dementia.
Brescia, Italy. In Front Aging Neurosci, Dec 2014
Genetic studies have identified several genes associated with monogenic FTD: microtubule-associated protein tau, progranulin, TAR DNA-binding protein 43, valosin-containing protein, charged multivesicular body protein 2B, fused in sarcoma, and the hexanucleotide repeat expansion in intron 1 of the chromosome 9 open reading frame 72.
Genetics of Alzheimer's Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia.
Florence, Italy. In Curr Mol Med, Nov 2014
Up to now, the genetics of familial forms of FTD is related to 7 genes: the microtubule-associated protein tau (MAPT) progranulin (GRN), the valosin-containing protein (VCP), chromatin-modifying 2B (CHMP2B), the TARDNA binding protein 43 encoding gene (TARBDP), fused in sarcoma (FUS) and the last hexanucleotide expansion repeats in the open reading frame of chromosome 9 (C9orf72).

FTLD is also associated with VCP, CHMP2B, TARDBP and FUS mutations, but each of these account for <1% of familial FTLD cases.
Mouse models of frontotemporal dementia.
Birmingham, United States. In Ann Neurol, 2012
MAPT/tau, GRN/progranulin, and C9ORF72 have emerged as common FTD genes, and TARDBP/TDP-43, VCP, FUS, and CHMP2B have been identified as less common genetic causes.
Frontotemporal dementia caused by CHMP2B mutations.
London, United Kingdom. In Curr Alzheimer Res, 2011
recent advances in our understanding of the molecular basis of CHMP2B mutations indicate that the mechanisms involved may be broadly relevant to neurodegenerative processes.[review]
ESCRT-III recognition by VPS4 ATPases.
Salt Lake City, United States. In Nature, 2007
Structures of VPS4A MIT-CHMP1A and VPS4B MIT-CHMP2B complexes reveal that the C-terminal CHMP motif forms an amphipathic helix that binds in a groove between the last two helices of the tetratricopeptide-like repeat (TPR) of the VPS4 MIT domain, but in the opposite orientation to that of a canonical TPR interaction.
