Identification of DPAGT1 as a new gene in which mutations cause a congenital myasthenic syndrome.
Congenital myasthenic syndromes (CMS) are a group of inherited disorders that arise from impaired signal transmission at the neuromuscular synapse. They are characterized by fatigable muscle weakness. This is a heterogenous group of disorders with 15 different genes implicated in the development of the disease. Using whole-exome sequencing we identified DPAGT1 as a new gene associated with CMS. DPAGT1 catalyses the first step of N-linked protein glycosylation. DPAGT1 patients are characterize...Expand abstract
