Molecular Genetic Analysis of Hereditary Neurodegenerative Diseases

Molecular Genetic Analysis of Hereditary Neurodegenerative Diseases The review summarizes the results of a decade of molecular genetic studies of several high-incidence hereditary neurodegenerative diseases, including primary parkinsonism, various forms of hereditary dystonia and ataxia, polyglutamine disorders, hepatolenticular degeneration, essential tremor, etc. Various relevant mutations were studied. The character and frequencies of particular mutations and the corresponding genetic disorders were established for the Russian population. Particular genotypes were associated with various clinical variants of the diseases. Genetic loci were identified for several unique hereditary diseases of the nervous system (X-linked cerebellar hypoplasia, an atypical form of autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy, etc.). Nosological positions of the relevant clinical forms were clarified on the basis of the molecular genetic data. Protocols were developed for direct or indirect DNA diagnostics of the diseases under study to improve medical genetic counseling and prevention of new disease cases in affected families. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

The review summarizes the results of a decade of molecular genetic studies of several high-incidence hereditary neurodegenerative diseases, including primary parkinsonism, various forms of hereditary dystonia and ataxia, polyglutamine disorders, hepatolenticular degeneration, essential tremor, etc. Various relevant mutations were studied. The character and frequencies of particular mutations and the corresponding genetic disorders were established for the Russian population. Particular genotypes were associated with various clinical variants of the diseases. Genetic loci were identified for several unique hereditary diseases of the nervous system (X-linked cerebellar hypoplasia, an atypical form of autosomal recessive muscular dystrophy, etc.). Nosological positions of the relevant clinical forms were clarified on the basis of the molecular genetic data. Protocols were developed for direct or indirect DNA diagnostics of the diseases under study to improve medical genetic counseling and prevention of new disease cases in affected families.
