  • Neuroimaging signatures of frontotemporal dementia genetics: C9ORF72, tau, progranulin and sporadics. Whitwell, Jennifer L.; Weigand, Stephen D.; Boeve, Bradley F.; Senjem, Matthew L.; Gunter, Jeffrey L.; DeJesus-Hernandez, Mariely; Rutherford, Nicola J.; Baker, Matthew; Knopman, David S.; Wszolek, Zbigniew K.; Parisi, Joseph E.; Dickson, Dennis W.; Petersen, Ronald C.; Rademakers, Rosa; Jack, Clifford R.; Josephs, Keith A. // Brain: A Journal of Neurology;Mar2012, Vol. 135 Issue 3, p794 

    A major recent discovery was the identification of an expansion of a non-coding GGGGCC hexanucleotide repeat in the C9ORF72 gene in patients with frontotemporal dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Mutations in two other genes are known to account for familial frontotemporal dementia:...
