New
Chabrol et al., Marseille, France. In Brain Dev, Jan 2016
INTRODUCTION: The Mitofusin 2 gene (MFN2), which encodes a mitochondrial membrane protein, is known to be the first cause of autosomal dominant Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2 (CMT2) with early onset.
Mutations in SLC25A46, encoding a UGO1-like protein, cause an optic atrophy spectrum disorder.
New
Impact
Dallman et al., Miami, United States. In Nat Genet, Aug 2015
Dominant optic atrophy (DOA) and axonal peripheral neuropathy (Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 2, or CMT2) are hereditary neurodegenerative disorders most commonly caused by mutations in the canonical mitochondrial fusion genes OPA1 and MFN2, respectively.

Review
New
Mingmin et al., Shanghai, China. In Yi Chuan, Jun 2015
CMT is generally divided into three forms: demyelinating forms (CMT1), axonal forms (CMT2) and intermediate forms (DI-CMT).
CHCHD10 mutations promote loss of mitochondrial cristae junctions with impaired mitochondrial genome maintenance and inhibition of apoptosis.
Paquis-Flucklinger et al., Nice, France. In Embo Mol Med, 2014
CHCHD10-related diseases include mitochondrial DNA instability disorder, frontotemporal dementia-amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FTD-ALS) clinical spectrum, late-onset spinal motor neuropathy (SMAJ), and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2 (CMT2).
