Patients with the major and minor form of hyperekplexia differ with regards to disynaptic reciprocal inhibition between ankle flexor and extensor muscles.

Abstract:

The aim of the present study was to investigate the contribution of reciprocal inhibition to muscle tone by examining the transmission in the reciprocal inhibitory pathway in patients with a known defect in the glycine receptor. The study was performed in eight patients with hereditary hyperekplexia, six with the major form and two with the minor form of the disease. A mutation in the alpha1-subunit of the glycine receptor had been demonstrated in the patients with the major form, whereas no ...
