    We report missense mutations in the mitochondrial fusion protein mitofusin 2 (MFN2) in seven large pedigrees affected with Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuropathy type 2A (CMT2A). Although a mutation in kinesin family member 1B-β (KIF1B) was associated with CMT2A in a single Japanese family, we found...

    X-linked hereditary demyelinating neuropathy (Charcot-Marie-Tooth IX) accounts for 10% to 20% of all hereditary demyelinating neuropathies and is caused by mutations in the GJBI gene, which codes for connexin 32. Connexin 32 is a gap junction protein widely expressed in Schwann cells as well as...

    Background Phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase (PRS) I deficiency is a rare medical condition caused by missense mutations in PRPS1 that lead to three different phenotypes: Arts Syndrome (MIM 301835), X-linked Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMTX5, MIM 311070) or X linked non-syndromic sensorineural...

    Background: Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) represents a heterogeneous group of disorders affecting the peripheral nervous system. The protein encoded by the periaxin (PRX) gene has a functional role in the maintenance of peripheral nerve myelin. Mutations in the PRX gene have been identified...
