Next generation sequencing in a large cohort of patients presenting with neuromuscular disease before or at birth.
Verdun, France. In Orphanet J Rare Dis, 2014
Within this cohort, mutations were found in eight previously known neuromuscular disease genes (CHRND, CHNRG, ECEL1, GBE1, MTM1, MYH3, NEB and RYR1) and four novel neuromuscular disease genes were identified and have been published as separate reports (GPR126, KLHL40, KLHL41 and SPEG).
Pemphigus vulgaris autoantibody profiling by proteomic technique.
Irvine, United States. In Plos One, 2012
The frequency of antigen recognition by patients that exceeded that of control by 10 and more times were the molecules encoded by the CD33, GP1BA, CHRND, SLC36A4, CD1B, CD32, CDH8, CDH9, PMP22 and HLA-E genes as well as mitochondrial proteins encoded by the NDUFS1, CYB5B, SOD2, PDHA1 and FH genes.
Congenital myasthenic syndrome: a brief review.
Curitiba, Brazil. In Pediatr Neurol, 2012
Therefore, genetic testing may be necessary to identify specific mutations in CHAT, COLQ, LAMB2, CHRNA, CHRNB, CHRND, CHRNE, CHRNG, RAPSN, DOK7, MUSK, AGRN, SCN4A, GFPT1, or PLEC1 genes.
Germline mutation in DOK7 associated with fetal akinesia deformation sequence.
Birmingham, United Kingdom. In J Med Genet, 2009
Previously, we and others reported that homozygous mutations in the fetal acetylcholine receptor gamma subunit (CHRNG) can cause both lethal and non-lethal MPS, demonstrating that pterygia resulted from fetal akinesia, and that mutations in the acetylcholine receptor subunits CHRNA1, CHRND, and Rapsyn (RAPSN) can also result in a MPS/FADS phenotype.
