The 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (MTHFR) 677C>T polymorphism produces an elevation in plasma homocysteine concentrations when present in the homozygous state. Increased homocysteine levels have been associated with a greater risk for vascular diseases, including cardiovascular disease and ischemic stroke. In this study, we genotyped 42(More)
Autosomal recessive hereditary inclusion body myopathy (HIBM or IBM2) is a progressive adult onset muscle wasting disorder characterized by sparing of the quadriceps. IBM2 is also known as distal myopathy with rimmed vacuoles or nonaka myopathy. IBM2 is associated with mutations in the UDP-GlcNAc 2-Epimerase/ManNAc Kinase gene (GNE). GNE is the(More)
Hereditary inclusion body myopathy/distal myopathy with rimmed vacuoles is an adult onset autosomal recessive muscle-wasting disease common in people of Iranian-Jewish descent, due to the founder allelic variant GNE:p.M712T. High correlation of disease susceptibility with GNE:p.M712T allows its use as a molecular marker for diagnosis. In this study, we(More)
