Motifs within the CLN3 protein: modulation of cell growth rates and apoptosis.


Juvenile Batten disease (JNCL) is an autosomal recessive disease that results from mutations in the CLN3 gene. The wild-type CLN3 gene coding sequence has 15 exons, and the translated protein consists of 438 amino acids. The most commonly observed mutation is a 1.02 kb deletion in the genomic DNA. This deletion results in a truncated protein due to the loss… (More)
