Genome-wide linkage analysis of a Parkinsonian-pyramidal syndrome pedigree by 500 K SNP arrays.
Robust SNP genotyping technologies and data analysis programs have encouraged researchers in recent years to use SNPs for linkage studies. Platforms used to date have been 10 K chip arrays, but theExpand

Early‐onset L‐dopa‐responsive parkinsonism with pyramidal signs due to ATP13A2, PLA2G6, FBXO7 and spatacsin mutations
Seven autosomal recessive genes associated with juvenile and young‐onset Levodopa‐responsive parkinsonism have been identified. Mutations in PRKN, DJ‐1, and PINK1 are associated with a rather pureExpand

Loss of function mutations in the gene encoding latent transforming growth factor beta binding protein 2, LTBP2, cause primary congenital glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a heterogeneous group of optic neuropathies that manifests by optic nerve head cupping or degeneration of the optic nerve, resulting in a specific pattern of visual field loss. GlaucomaExpand

CYP1B1 mutation profile of Iranian primary congenital glaucoma patients and associated haplotypes.
The mutation spectrum of CYP1B1 among 104 primary congenital glaucoma patients of the genetically heterogeneous Iranian population was investigated by sequencing. We also determined intragenic singleExpand

LTBP2 mutations cause Weill–Marchesani and Weill–Marchesani‐like syndrome and affect disruptions in the extracellular matrix
Latent transforming growth factor (TGF) beta‐binding protein 2 (LTBP2) is an extracellular matrix (ECM) protein that associates with fibrillin‐1 containing microfibrils. Various factors promptedExpand

Homozygous missense mutation in fibulin-5 in an Iranian autosomal recessive cutis laxa pedigree and associated haplotype.
Cutis laxa is a rare group of inherited and acquired disorders characterized by loose and redundant skin with reduced elasticity. Mutations in the elastin coding gene have been shown to causeExpand

Contributions of MYOC and CYP1B1 mutations to JOAG
Purpose To investigate the role of MYOC and CYP1B1 in Iranian juvenile open angle glaucoma (JOAG) patients. Methods Twenty-three JOAG probands, their available affected and unaffected family members,Expand

Repeat expansion in C9ORF72 is not a major cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis among Iranian patients
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is the most common motor neuron disease in populations of European descent. It was recently found that a hexanucleotide repeat expansion in C9ORF72 is its mostExpand

Identification of mutation in GTPBP2 in patients of a family with neurodegeneration accompanied by iron deposition in the brain
We aimed to identify the genetic cause of a neurologic disorder accompanied with mental deficiency in a consanguineous family with 3 affected siblings by linkage analysis and exome sequencing. IronExpand
