Autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease: from genes to phenotypes.
Algiers, Algeria. In J Peripher Nerv Syst, 2013
Recent clinical, morphological and molecular investigations of CMT families with autosomal recessive inheritance allowed the identification of many genes such as GDAP1, MTMR2, SBF2, NDRG1, EGR2, SH3TC2, PRX, FGD4, and FIG4, implicated in demyelinating forms (ARCMT1 or CMT4), and LMNA, MED25, HINT1, GDAP1, LRSAM1, NEFL, HSPB1 and MFN2 in axonal forms (ARCMT2).
Myotubularin phosphoinositide phosphatases in human diseases.
Illkirch-Graffenstaden, France. In Curr Top Microbiol Immunol, 2011
Several myotubularins have been genetically linked to human diseases: MTM1 is mutated in the congenital myopathy X-linked centronuclear or myotubular myopathy (XLCNM) and MTMR14 (JUMPY) has been linked to an autosomal form of such disease, while MTMR2 and MTMR13 are mutated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) neuropathies.
