Spinocerebellar ataxia is a growing group of hereditary neurodegenerative diseases for which ≥30 different genetic loci have been identified. In this study, we assessed the repeats at eight spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) loci in 188 clinical SCA patients and 100 individuals without any neurological signs. Results from the present study were able to identify… (More)
Exploration of CAG triplet repeat in nontranslated region of SCA12 gene.
BACKGROUND Degenerated disc disease (DDD) is a common disorder responsible for increased morbidity in a productive age group. Its etiology is multifactorial and genetic factors have been predominantly implicated. Disc prolapse results due to tear in the annulus, which is a fibrous structure composed largely of type I collagen. Functional polymorphism at the… (More)
