Summaries for Spastic Paraplegia 44, Autosomal Recessive

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 73 Spastic paraplegia 44, autosomal recessive: A form of spastic paraplegia, a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. Rate of progression and the severity of symptoms are quite variable. Initial symptoms may include difficulty with balance, weakness and stiffness in the legs, muscle spasms, and dragging the toes when walking. In some forms of the disorder, bladder symptoms (such as incontinence) may appear, or the weakness and stiffness may spread to other parts of the body.

MalaCards based summary : Spastic Paraplegia 44, Autosomal Recessive, also known as spg44, is related to leukodystrophy, hypomyelinating, 8, with or without oligodontia and/or hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and hypomyelinating leukoencephalopathy, and has symptoms including action tremor and cerebellar ataxia. An important gene associated with Spastic Paraplegia 44, Autosomal Recessive is GJC2 (Gap Junction Protein Gamma 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Endocytosis. Affiliated tissues include eye, brain and bone, and related phenotypes are ataxia and dysarthria

Disease Ontology : 12 A hereditary spastic paraplegia that has material basis in mutation in the GJC2 gene on chromosome 1q42.
