ALS5/SPG11/KIAA1840 mutations cause autosomal recessive axonal Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.
Roma, Italy. In Brain, Jan 2016
Besides, we screened for all the known genes related to axonal autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT2A2/HMSN2A2/MFN2, CMT2B1/LMNA, CMT2B2/MED25, CMT2B5/NEFL, ARCMT2F/dHMN2B/HSPB1, CMT2K/GDAP1, CMT2P/LRSAM1, CMT2R/TRIM2, CMT2S/IGHMBP2, CMT2T/HSJ1, CMTRID/COX6A1, ARAN-NM/HINT and GAN/GAN), for the genes related to autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraplegia with thin corpus callosum and axonal peripheral neuropathy (SPG7/PGN, SPG15/ZFYVE26, SPG21/ACP33, SPG35/FA2H, SPG46/GBA2, SPG55/C12orf65 and SPG56/CYP2U1), as well as for the causative gene of peripheral neuropathy with or without agenesis of the corpus callosum (SLC12A6).
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease: New insights from skin biopsy.
Verona, Italy. In Neurology, Nov 2015
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate, by skin biopsy, dermal nerve fibers in 31 patients with 3 common Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) genotypes (CMT1A, late-onset CMT1B, and CMTX1), and rarer forms of CMT caused by mutations in RAB7 (CMT2B), TRPV4 (CMT2C), and GDAP1 (AR-CMT2K) genes.
Mitochondrial dynamics and inherited peripheral nerve diseases.
Milano, Italy. In Neurosci Lett, Jul 2015
Abnormalities of mitochondrial dynamics produced by mutations in proteins involved in mitochondrial fusion (mitofusin-2, MFN2), fission (ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein-1, GDAP1), and mitochondrial axonal transport usually present with a Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) phenotype.
Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy type 2 associated (?) with mild peripheral polyneuropathy.
Warsaw, Poland. In Folia Neuropathol, 2014
The analysis of peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22), ganglioside induced differentiation-associated protein 1 (GDAP1), gap junction β-1 protein (GJB1), and myelin protein zero (MPZ) genes did not reveal mutations; however, we identified a new sequence intronic variant in the mitofusin 2 (MFN2) gene of unknown pathogenic significance.
The allelic spectrum of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease in over 17,000 individuals with neuropathy.
Houston, United States. In Mol Genet Genomic Med, 2014
We report the frequency, positive rate, and type of mutations in 14 genes (PMP22, GJB1, MPZ, MFN2, SH3TC2, GDAP1, NEFL, LITAF, GARS, HSPB1, FIG4, EGR2, PRX, and RAB7A) associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) in a cohort of 17,880 individuals referred to a commercial genetic testing laboratory.
