Identification of a new Pmp22 mouse mutant and trafficking analysis of a Pmp22 allelic series suggesting that protein aggregates may be protective in Pmp22-associated peripheral neuropathy.

Abstract:

We have identified and characterized a new peripheral myelin protein 22 (Pmp22) mouse mutant. The mutation results in a serine to threonine amino acid substitution at residue 72, which is a hot spot for mutation in human PMP22, leading to the peripheral neuropathy Dejerine-Sottas syndrome. We have previously described two other Pmp22 mutants, providing an allelic series for gene function analysis. Pmp22 mutations generally lead to abnormal intracellular trafficking of Pmp22, and we show that ...
