A novel locus for autosomal recessive primary torsion dystonia (DYT17) maps to 20p11.22–q13.12


Primary torsion dystonia is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of movement disorders. Fifteen different types of dystonia have been described to date, of whom 14 loci have been mapped, but only seven genes identified. Several different modes of inheritance have been described, including autosomal dominant transmission with reduced penetrance… (More)
