UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease 2B1: A recessive axonal form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a disorder of the peripheral nervous system, characterized by progressive weakness and atrophy, initially of the peroneal muscles and later of the distal muscles of the arms. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is classified in two main groups on the basis of electrophysiologic properties and histopathology: primary peripheral demyelinating neuropathies (designated CMT1 when they are dominantly inherited) and primary peripheral axonal neuropathies (CMT2). Neuropathies of the CMT2 group are characterized by signs of axonal degeneration in the absence of obvious myelin alterations, normal or slightly reduced nerve conduction velocities, and progressive distal muscle weakness and atrophy. Nerve conduction velocities are normal or slightly reduced.
MalaCards based summary: Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, Type 2b1, also known as charcot-marie-tooth neuropathy type 2b1, is related to charcot-marie-tooth disease, type 2a1 and charcot-marie-tooth disease, type 2b2, and has symptoms including foot dorsiflexor weakness, distal amyotrophy and upper limb muscle weakness. An important gene associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, Type 2b1 is LMNA (Lamin A/C).
