Cognitive characterization of SCAR10 caused by a homozygous c.132dupA mutation in the ANO10 gene.

Cognitive characterization of SCAR10 caused by a homozygous c.132dupA mutation in the ANO10 gene. Neurocase. 2019 Aug 19;:1-7 Authors: Nieto A, Pérez-Flores J, Corral-Juan M, Matilla-Dueñas A, Martínez-Burgallo F, Montón F Abstract Autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCAR10) caused by a homozygous c.132dupA mutation in the anoctamin 10 gene is infrequent and little is known about its cognitive profile. Three siblings (1 male) with this mutation were assessed with a neuropsychological battery measuring multiple cognitive domains. The deficits observed in one patient were in executive functions whereas the other two patients showed deficits in practically all the functions. Cognitive impairment seems to be a characteristic of the SCAR10 produced by this mutation, with a range from mild impairment, especially involving prefrontal systems, to a severe cognitive impairment suggesting widespread cerebral involvement.

Publication date: Available online 23 January 2020Source: Mutation Research/Fundamental and Molecular Mechanisms of MutagenesisAuthor(s): Kalyan Mahapatra, Sujit RoyAbstractBecause of their sessile lifestyle, plants are inescapably exposed to various kinds of environmental stresses throughout their lifetime. Therefore, to regulate their growth and development, plants constantly monitor the environmental signals and respond appropriately. However, these environmental stress factors, along with some endogenous metabolites, generated in response to environmental stress factors often induce various forms of DNA damage in plant...

AbstractThe prevalence estimations of hereditary ataxias are biased since most epidemiological studies are confined to isolated geographical regions and few nationwide studies are available. The study aims to assess the prevalence, distribution, and neurological features of the Cuban population with hereditary ataxias. A nationwide epidemiological study of hereditary ataxias was conducted in Cuba between March 2017 and June 2018. Patients were scheduled at the Cuban ataxia research center, various hospitals, or at their homes. Demographic and clinical variables were obtained through standardized questionnaires and validate...

AbstractThis is a letter to the Editor concerning the recently published article by Zerem et al. The paper described a 12yo female with multisystem mitochondrial disorder (MID) due to the compound heterozygous variants c.1963_1964dupAT and p.Ile382Met inOPA1 manifesting phenotypically with congenital nystagmus, developmental delay, visual impairment, gait ataxia, epilepsy, a stroke-like episode (SLE) with encephalopathy and vomiting, and hearing impairment. This interesting case could be more meaningful by providing more information about the treatment of the SLE/stroke-like lesion (SLL), about the morphological characteri...

Children with SSADH deficiency usually manifest with developmental delay, behavioral symptoms, language dysfunction, seizures, hypotonia, extrapyramidal symptoms, and ataxia. Diagnosis of SSADH deficiency is established by an abnormal urine organic acid pattern, including increased excretion of 4-hydroxybu...

Abstract The clinical assessment of speech abnormalities in Cerebellar Ataxia (CA) is time-consuming and inconsistent. We have developed an automated objective system to quantify CA severity and thereby facilitate remote monitoring and optimisation of therapeutic interventions. A quantitative acoustic assessment could prove to be a viable biomarker for this purpose. Our study explores the use of phase-based cepstral features extracted from the modified group delay function as a complement to the features obtained from the magnitude cepstrum. We selected a combination of 15 acoustic measurements using RELIEF featur...

Friedreich’s ataxia (FRDA) is a human hereditary disease caused by the presence of expanded (GAA)n repeats in the first intron of the FXN gene [V. Campuzano et al., Science 271, 1423–1427 (1996)]. In somatic tissues of FRDA patients, (GAA)n repeat tracts are highly unstable, with contractions more common than expansions...

The J.P. Morgan Healthcare conference runs every year in San Francisco, a big draw for the biotech industry, and many organizations take the opportunity to host events at the same time. Among these, the SENS Research Foundation has for the past few years hosted a pitch day in which biotech companies in the longevity industry, largely startups, present to that portion of the Bay Area investor community interested in funding the treatment of aging as a medical condition. I was there to present on progress at Repair Biotechnologies, and took some notes on the other companies as they talked about their work. Kimera Labs ...

Mutations in CAPN1 have recently been reported to cause the spastic paraplegia 76 (SPG76) subtype of hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP). To investigate the role of CAPN1 in spastic paraplegia and other neurodegenerative diseases, including spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA), early-onset Parkinson's disease (EOPD), and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) we conducted a mutation analysis of CAPN1 in a cohort of Chinese patients with SPG, SCA, EOPD, and ALS.
