Nonfunctional NaV1.1 familial hemiplegic migraine mutant transformed into gain of function by partial rescue of folding defects.
 

Author(s): Sandrine Cestèle, Emanuele Schiavon, Raffaella Rusconi, Silvana Franceschetti, Massimo Mantegazza

Journal: Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A.. 2013 Oct;110(43):17546-51.

 

Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) is a rare subtype of migraine with aura. Mutations causing FHM type 3 have been identified in SCN1A, the gene encoding the Nav1.1 Na(+) channel, which is also a major target of epileptogenic mutations and is particularly important for the excitability ...

TNFα levels and macrophages expression reflect an inflammatory potential of trigeminal ganglia in a mouse model of familial hemiplegic migraine.
 

Author(s): Alessia Franceschini, Sandra Vilotti, Michel D Ferrari, Arn M J M van den Maagdenberg, Andrea Nistri, Elsa Fabbretti

Journal: PLoS ONE. 2013 ;8(1):e52394.

 

Latent changes in trigeminal ganglion structure and function resembling inflammatory conditions may predispose to acute attacks of migraine pain. Here, we investigated whether, in trigeminal sensory ganglia, cytokines such as TNFα might contribute to a local inflammatory phenotype ...

PRRT2 mutations in familial infantile seizures, paroxysmal dyskinesia, and hemiplegic migraine.
 

Author(s): Carla Marini, Valerio Conti, Davide Mei, Domenica Battaglia, Donatella Lettori, Emma Losito, Grazia Bruccini, Gaetano Tortorella, Renzo Guerrini

Journal: Neurology. 2012 Nov;79(21):2109-14.

 

To perform a clinical and genetic study of a family with benign familial infantile seizures (BFIS) and, upon finding a PRRT2 gene mutation, to study a cohort of probands with a similar phenotype. We extended the study to all available family members to find out whether PRRT2 mutations ...

Genetic effects of ATP1A2 in familial hemiplegic migraine type II and animal models.
 

Author(s): Stephanie M Gritz, Richard A Radcliffe

Journal:

 

Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase alpha 2 (Atp1a2) is an integral plasma membrane protein belonging to the P-type ATPase family that is responsible for maintaining the sodium (Na(+)) and potassium (K(+)) gradients across cellular membranes with hydrolysis of ATP. Atp1a2 contains two subunits, alpha ...

Insights into migraine mechanisms and CaV2.1 calcium channel function from mouse models of familial hemiplegic migraine.
 

Author(s): Daniela Pietrobon

Journal: J. Physiol. (Lond.). 2010 Jun;588(Pt 11):1871-8.

 

Migraine is a very common disabling brain disorder with unclear pathogenesis. A subtype of migraine with aura (familial hemiplegic migraine type 1: FHM1) is caused by mutations in CaV2.1 (P/Q-type) Ca2+ channels. This review describes the functional consequences of FHM1 mutations ...
