Screening for premutation in the FMR1 gene in male patients suspected of spinocerebellar ataxia.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the molecular basis of the disorder in patients suspected of spinocerebellar ataxias (SCAs) and search for premutation in the FMR1 gene causing FXTAS among patients in whom 9 SCA types were previously excluded. MATERIAL AND METHODS DNA obtained from 1385 patients suspected of SCA and 516… (More)
