Mutations of voltage-gated sodium channels in movement disorders and epilepsy.


Spontaneous and induced mutations of neuronal Na+ channels in human patients and mutant mice result in a broad range of neurological-disease. Epilepsy, a disorder of neuronal hyperexcitability, has been associated with delayed inactivation of SCN2A in mice, and with altered kinetics of SCN1A in human patients. Movement disorders including tremor, ataxia… (More)
