Ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type 2 (AOA2) is a newly described autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia (ARCA) defined by genetic location to 9q34 of three families sharing gait ataxia, oculomotor apraxia and/or elevated alpha-foetoprotein (AFP) levels. We have evaluated 77 families with progressive non-Friedreich ARCA and have identified six families with(More)
Ataxia with ocular motor apraxia type 1 (AOA1) is an autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia (ARCA) associated with oculomotor apraxia, hypoalbuminaemia and hypercholesterolaemia. The gene APTX, which encodes aprataxin, has been identified recently. We studied a large series of 158 families with non-Friedreich progressive ARCA. We identified 14 patients (nine(More)
