Mutation detection in the guanosine triphosphate cyclohydrolase I gene (GCH1) was performed from 4 female patients with dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD). DNA sequencing revealed the presence of four novel mutations including c.2T>C(M1T), c.239G>A(S80N), c.245T>C(L82P), and IVS5+3 del AAGT. These four mutations were not found in 100 genetically unrelated(More)
