Friedreich's Ataxia: Autosomal Recessive Disease Caused by an Intronic GAA Triplet Repeat Expansion
Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is an autosomal recessive, degenerative disease that involves the central and peripheral nervous systems and the heart. A gene, X25, was identified in the critical regionExpand

DNA duplication associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A
Charcot-Marie-tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A) was localized by genetic mapping to a 3 cM interval on human chromosome 17p. DNA markers within this interval revealed a duplication that is completelyExpand

Mutation of PAX9 is associated with oligodontia
We identified a frameshift mutation in the paired domain of PAX9 following genome-wide analysis of a family segregating autosomal dominant oligodontia. Affected members have normal primary dentitionExpand

Molecular analysis of the Smith-Magenis syndrome: a possible contiguous-gene syndrome associated with del(17)(p11.2).
We undertook clinical evaluation (32 cases) and molecular evaluation (31 cases) of unrelated patients affected with Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS) associated with an interstitial deletion of band p11.2Expand

Gender, genotype, and phenotype differences in Smith–Magenis syndrome: a meta‐analysis of 105 cases
Smith–Magenis syndrome (SMS) is a multisystem disorder characterized by developmental delay and mental retardation, a distinctive behavioral phenotype, and sleep disturbance. We undertook aExpand

The gene for the peripheral myelin protein PMP–22 is a candidate for Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease type 1A
Charcot–Marie-–ooth disease type 1A (CMT1A) is an autosomal dominant peripheral neuropathy associated with a large DNA duplication on the short arm of human chromosome 17. The trembler (Tr) mouseExpand

Charcot–Marie–Tooth type 1A duplication appears to arise from recombination at repeat sequences flanking the 1.5 Mb monomer unit
We have constructed a 3.1 megabase (Mb) physical map of chromosome 17p11.2–p12, which contains a submicroscopic duplication in patients with Charcot–Marie–Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A). We find thatExpand

The GAA triplet-repeat expansion in Friedreich ataxia interferes with transcription and may be associated with an unusual DNA structure.
Friedreich ataxia (FRDA), an autosomal recessive, neurodegenerative disease is the most common inherited ataxia. The vast majority of patients are homozygous for an abnormal expansion of aExpand

Two autosomal dominant neuropathies result from reciprocal DNA duplication/deletion of a region on chromosome 17.
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A) is a common autosomal dominant demyelinating neuropathy that is associated with a 1.5 megabase (Mb) tandem DNA duplication in chromosome 17p11.2-p12.Expand

Molecular analyses of unrelated Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease patients suggest a high frequency of the CMTIA duplication.
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is the most common inherited peripheral neuropathy. One form of CMT, CMT type 1A, is characterized by uniformly decreased nerve conduction velocities, usually showsExpand
