Author(s): Annalese G Neuenschwander, Khanh K Thai, Karla P Figueroa, Stefan M Pulst

Journal: JAMA Neurol. 2014 Dec;71(12):1529-34.

 

Repeats of CAG in the ataxin 2 gene (ATXN2) in the long-normal range (sometimes referred to as intermediate) have been identified as modifiers of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) risk. Prior studies have used thresholding considering various cutoffs for ATXN2 repeat length.
