Large deletion involving the 5'-UTR in the spastin gene caused mild phenotype of autosomal dominant hereditary spastic paraplegia.


Hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) due to mutations in the spastin gene (SPG4) located to 2p22-p21 is the most common form of autosomal dominant (AD) HSP. We performed PCR-based direct sequencing of SPG4, followed by a linkage analysis and subsequent Southern blot analysis in large Japanese kindred where 20 of 33 members were evaluated neurologically, and… (More)
