Genetic epidemiology of Charcot–Marie–Tooth in the general population
Background and purpose: The frequency of different Charcot–Marie–Tooth (CMT) genotypes has been estimated in clinic populations, but prevalence data from the general population are lacking.

MFN2 point mutations occur in 3.4% of Charcot-Marie-Tooth families. An investigation of 232 Norwegian CMT families
BackgroundPoint mutations in the mitofusin 2 (MFN2) gene has been identified exclusively in Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 2 (CMT2), and in a single family with intermediate CMT. MFN2 point mutations areExpand

Genetic Diagnosis of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease in a Population by Next-Generation Sequencing
Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease is the most prevalent inherited neuropathy. Today more than 40 CMT genes have been identified. Diagnosing heterogeneous diseases by conventional Sanger sequencing isExpand

Hereditary peripheral neuropathies diagnosed by next-generation sequencing.
BACKGROUND Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is a genetic technique used to determine the order of nucleotides in DNA. The technique has proved to be more efficient than the traditional method, SangerExpand

Charcot-Marie-Tooth caused by a copy number variation in myelin protein zero.
INTRODUCTION Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is the most common inherited disorder of the peripheral nervous system. The majority has a duplication of the peripheral myelin protein 22. CMT isExpand

Copy Number Variations in a Population-Based Study of Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease
Copy number variations (CNVs) are important in relation to diversity and evolution but can sometimes cause disease. The most common genetic cause of the inherited peripheral neuropathyExpand

Variants in the genes DCTN2,DNAH10,LRIG3, and MYO1A are associated with intermediate Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease in a Norwegian family
Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease (CMT) is a heterogeneous inherited neuropathy. The number of known CMT genes is rapidly increasing mainly due to next‐generation sequencing technology, at present moreExpand
