Identification of a novel mutation in PLA2G6 gene in a Chinese pedigree with familial cortical myoclonic tremor with epilepsy.
 

Author(s): Lehong Gao, Liping Li, Jing Ye, Xilin Zhu, Ning Shen, Xiating Zhang, Dequan Wang, Yu Gao, Hua Lin, Yuping Wang, Ying Liu

Journal: Seizure. 2016 Oct;41():81-5.

 

Familial cortical myoclonic tremor with epilepsy (FCMTE) is an epileptic syndrome with autosomal dominant inheritance, of which four genetic subtypes (FCMTE1-4) have been reported. In the present study, we described the clinical and neurophysiologic features of a newly diagnosed Chinese ...

Familial Aggregation and Co-Aggregation of Essential Tremor and Parkinson's Disease.
 

Author(s): Elan D Louis, Lorraine Clark, Ruth Ottman

Journal: Neuroepidemiology. 2016 ;46(1):31-6.

 

Current data suggest that the 2 common tremor disorders, essential tremor (ET) and Parkinson's disease (PD), may be associated with one another. Familial aggregation studies allow one to further explore their relatedness.

Identification of candidate genes for familial early-onset essential tremor.
 

Author(s): Xinmin Liu, Nora Hernandez, Sergey Kisselev, Aris Floratos, Ashley Sawle, Iuliana Ionita-Laza, Ruth Ottman, Elan D Louis, Lorraine N Clark

Journal: Eur. J. Hum. Genet.. 2016 Jul;24(7):1009-15.

 

Essential tremor (ET) is one of the most common causes of tremor in humans. Despite its high heritability and prevalence, few susceptibility genes for ET have been identified. To identify ET genes, whole-exome sequencing was performed in 37 early-onset ET families with an autosomal-dominant ...
