Evidence for linkage of Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuropathy (CMT1) to apolipoprotein A2 (Apo-A2).


We studied 169 members of 15 families with Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuropathy (CMT1) showing male-to-male transmission and slow motor-nerve conduction velocities. Four of these families were informative for linkage to apolipoprotein A2 on chromosome 1 (1q21-23) with an overall lod score of 2.45 at theta = .001. There was no statistical evidence of genetic… (More)
