Contactin-associated protein-like 2 (Caspr2), also known as CNTNAP2, is a cell adhesion molecule that clusters voltage-gated potassium channels (Kv1.1/1.2) at the juxtaparanodes of myelinated axons and may regulate axonal excitability. As a component of the Kv1 complex, Caspr2 has been identified as a target in neuromyotonia and Morvan syndrome, but also in(More)
IMPORTANCE Autoantibodies against contactin-associated protein-like 2 (CASPR2) are observed in several neurological syndromes, including neuromyotonia (NMT), Morvan syndrome (MoS), and limbic encephalitis. OBJECTIVE To characterize the clinical and biological presentations of patients with anti-CASPR2 antibodies in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). DESIGN,(More)
OBJECTIVE To report paroxysmal episodes of cerebellar ataxia in a patient with anti-contactin-associated protein-like 2 (CASPR2) antibody-related autoimmune encephalitis and to search for similar paroxysmal ataxia in a cohort of patients with anti-CASPR2 antibody-associated autoimmune encephalitis. METHODS We report a patient with paroxysmal episodes of(More)
Caspr2 and TAG-1 (also known as CNTNAP2 and CNTN2, respectively) are cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) associated with the voltage-gated potassium channels Kv1.1 and Kv1.2 (also known as KCNA1 and KCNA2, respectively) at regions controlling axonal excitability, namely, the axon initial segment (AIS) and juxtaparanodes of myelinated axons. The distribution of(More)
