31 Possible Causes for Mutation in the DCTN1 Gene

  • X-linked Parkinsonism-Spasticity Syndrome

    […] in the DCTN1 gene which codes for dynactin-1 Pitt-Hopkins syndrome - a rare, multi-symptomatic neurogenetic disorder Polyglutamine (polyQ) disorders Prion disease Retinitis[sdbonline.org] […] nervous system mainly affecting the motor system Peroxisome disorders - Zellweger and non-Zellweger syndromes Perry syndrome - a progressive brain disease resulting from mutation[sdbonline.org]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy

    Codon 59 appears to be the mutational hot spot in the DCTN1 gene, as all described dHMN7B patients to date have harbored an identical p.G59S mutation.[spandidos-publications.com] Abstract Mutations in the Dynactin 1 (DCTN1) gene have been demonstrated to result in various neurodegenerative diseases, including distal hereditary motor neuropathy type[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Despite advances in the identification of novel gene mutations, 80% of patients with dHMN have a mutation in an as-yet undiscovered gene.[jnnp.bmj.com]

  • Distal Hereditary Motor Neuropathy Type 1

    HMN7A is caused by mutation in the SLC5A7 gene (608761). HMN7B is caused by mutation in the DCTN1 gene (601143). HMN8 is caused by mutation in the TRPV4 gene (605427).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] HMN5A is caused by mutation in the GARS gene (600287) and HMN5B is caused by mutation in the REEP1 gene (609139).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Perry Syndrome

    We describe a new family carrying a G71R mutation in the DCTN1 gene.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PS is caused by a change (mutation) in the DCTN1 gene and is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, which means a mutation in one of the two copies of the gene a person[diseaseinfosearch.org] Perry syndrome results from mutations in the DCTN1 gene.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lafora Disease

    Perry syndrome Next Generation Sequencing and Sanger Sequencing of the DCTN1 gene Persistent Mullerian Duct Syndrome type II Detection of mutation c.6331del27 in the AMHR2[pentacorelab.hu]

  • Spinal and Bulbar Muscular Atrophy

    Recently, a BSMA phenotype with distal predominance of limb weakness and wasting has been reported, caused by mutations in a subunit of the dynactin 1 DCTN1 gene.[orpha.net]

  • Cor Triloculare Biventriculare

    ... 133 Autonomic failures in Perry syndrome with DCTN1 mutation.[biomedsearch.com] […] dyskinesia (PKD)], co-inherited as a single autosomal dominant trait, have been described (infantile convulsions with paroxysmal choreoathetosis; ICCA syndrome) and a disease gene[biomedsearch.com]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis 1

    Genetic testing and counseling Genetic testing is available for many ALS-causing gene mutations.[mda.org] : Mutations & variants occurring in "sporadic" ALS 51 General Frequency: 28% Common: C9orf72 (9%); ATXN2 (3%); SETX (9%); DCTN1 (3%) Multiple mutations in one patient Frequency[neuromuscular.wustl.edu] […] associated with ALS1 are NEFH, PRPH, DCTN1.[mda.org]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
