Ceroid-lipofuscinosis, neuronal 8

CLN8, MND
This gene encodes a transmembrane protein belonging to a family of proteins containing TLC domains, which are postulated to function in lipid synthesis, transport, or sensing. The protein localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and may recycle between the ER and ER-Golgi intermediate compartment. Mutations in this gene are associated with progressive epilepsy with mental retardation (EMPR), which is a subtype of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCL). Patients with mutations in this gene have altered levels of sphingolipid and phospholipids in the brain. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Filippi et al., In Hum Brain Mapp, 28 Apr 2015
METHODS: T1-weighted and DT MRI were collected from 121 subjects: 35 motor neuron disease (MND), 14 behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia, 12 semantic and 11 nonfluent primary progressive aphasia, 21 progressive supranuclear palsy syndrome patients, and 28 healthy controls.

New
La Spada et al., San Diego, United States. In Discov Med, Feb 2015
Senataxin also joins a group of important proteins responsible for maintaining RNA transcriptome homeostasis, including FUS, TDP-43, and SMN that can all cause familial forms of motor neuron disease (MND).

Otto et al., Ulm, Germany. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Jan 2015
UNASSIGNED: Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) comprises a spectrum of rare neurodegenerative diseases with an estimated prevalence of 15-22 cases per 100,000 persons including the behavioral variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), progressive non-fluent aphasia (PNFA), semantic dementia (SD), FTD with motor neuron disease (FTD-MND), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal syndrome (CBS).
Novel rare missense variations and risk of autism spectrum disorder: whole-exome sequencing in two families with affected siblings and a two-stage follow-up study in a Japanese population.

Someya et al., Niigata, Japan. In Plos One, Dec 2014
Among these variations, CLN8 R24H was inherited in one family by three affected siblings from an affected father and thus co-segregated with ASD.

Review
Carrì et al., Leuven, Belgium. In Biochem Soc Trans, 2013
More and more genetic factors associated with MND encode proteins that have a function in RNA metabolism, suggesting that disturbed RNA metabolism could be a common underlying problem in several, perhaps all, forms of MND.
