Effect of genetic variation in the nicotinic receptor genes on risk for posttraumatic stress disorder.
Durham, United States. In Psychiatry Res, Oct 2015
The present study examined the association between genetic variation in the nicotinic receptor gene family (CHRNA2, CHRNA3, CHRNA4, CHRNA5, CHRNA6, CHRNA7, CHRNA9, CHRNA10, CHRNB2, CHRNB3, CHRNB4) and the occurrence of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Genetic models of focal epilepsies.
Paris, France. In J Neurosci Methods, Jul 2015
In this article, we provide an update on the mutational spectrum of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor genes (CHRNA4, CHRNB2, CHRNA2) and KCNT1 causing autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (ADNFLE), and of LGI1 in autosomal dominant epilepsy with auditory features (ADEAF).
Genetics advances in autosomal dominant focal epilepsies: focus on DEPDC5.
Paris, France. In Prog Brain Res, 2013
Molecular genetic advances in inherited focal epilepsies have pinpointed their genetic heterogeneity and the fact that they are mediated by different biological pathways: ion channel subunit genes have been linked to ADNFLE (CHRNA4, CHRNA2, CHRNB2, and KCNT1, encoding, respectively, the α4, α2, and β2 subunits of the neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, and a potassium channel subunit); neuronal secreted protein (LGI1-encoding epitempin) has been linked to autosomal dominant epilepsy with auditory features; and mTORC1-repressor DEPDC5 (DEP domain-containing protein 5) gene has recently been reported in a broad spectrum of inherited focal epilepsies (ADNFLE, FTLE, FFEVF).
Advances on the genetics of Mendelian idiopathic epilepsies.
Paris, France. In Clin Lab Med, 2010
Since 1995, positional cloning strategies in multigenerational families with autosomal dominant transmission have revealed 11 genes (KCNQ2, KCNQ3, CHRNA4, CHRNA2, CHRNB2, SCN1B, SCN1A, SCN2A, GABRG2, GABRA1, and LGI1) and numerous loci for febrile seizures and epilepsies.
Systematic meta-analyses of Alzheimer disease genetic association studies: the AlzGene database.
United States. In Nat Genet, 2007
In addition to identifying the epsilon4 allele of APOE and related effects, we pinpointed over a dozen potential Alzheimer disease susceptibility genes (ACE, CHRNB2, CST3, ESR1, GAPDHS, IDE, MTHFR, NCSTN, PRNP, PSEN1, TF, TFAM and TNF) with statistically significant allelic summary odds ratios (ranging from 1.11-1.38 for risk alleles and 0.92-0.67 for protective alleles).
Nicotinic acetylcholine receptor mutations
Bethesda, United States. In Unknown Journal, 0001
This rare genetic syndrome can be caused by mutations in at least two different subunits genes of the neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR), CHRNA4 and CHRNB2.
