Klugbauer N, Lacinova L, Flockerzi V, Hofmann F (1995) Structure and functional expression of a new member of the tetrodotoxin-sensitive voltage-activated sodium channel family from human neuroendocrine cells. Here, we performed a genetic screen of patients with febrile seizures and identified a novel missense mutation of SCN9A (W1150R). At last, protein damage analysis was conducted to qualitatively predict the probability of the results by SIFT, PolyPhen-2, and MutationTaster, and multispecies alignments were performed using Mega 7.0 to determine whether the affected amino acids were conserved. However, more and more studies have shown that SCN9A mutations in patients are also associated with variable epilepsy phenotypes including febrile seizures (FS) [3], GEFS+ [4], and Dravet syndrome (DS) [5] in recent years. However, the mutation in our study was located in highly conserved positions. Some genetic types of epilepsy can be diagnosed using a test that examines genes that have previously been shown to cause epilepsy when affected by genetic alterations. The mutation was not identified in 562 control chromosomes.

The mutations that cause this condition change single amino acids in the alpha subunit of the NaV1.7 sodium channel. As information on the epilepsies caused by SCN1A mutations are amongst our most frequently read posts, we thought that a quick update on the state-of-the art regarding SCN1A would be timely. The proband (IV1) is a 9-year-old boy with normal spontaneous vaginal delivery and development. After signing the consent, 2~4-ml peripheral blood from the ten members were collected.

So, we speculate that the SCN9A Y1958C mutation might also affect the selectivity of the ion channel. eCollection 2020. Becchetti A, Grandi LC, Colombo G, Meneghini S, Amadeo A. The Y1958C affected amino acid locates in the highly conserved amino acid region in different mammals (from Ensembl). Here, we report two heterozygous SCN9A mutations with no SCN1A mutations, which are associated with variable epilepsy phenotypes and explored the possibility of SCN9A contributing to a … In all, our results indicated that the point mutation W1150R resulted in a novel gain-of-function variant. One of these patients also had an SCN1A variant, which was also detected in a patient with AD febrile seizures. Furthermore, with administering OXC the time constant of the N641Y variant was longer than those of the other two SCN9A mutants. It is now believed that SCN8A mutations may cause up to 1% of all epilepsies. This mutation (c.5873A>G chr2:167055243 p.Y1958C) occurs in the population at a frequency of < 0.5% in the ExAC database (http://exac.broadinstitute.org/variant/2-167055243-T-C) and has not been reported in previous study or presented in dbSNP (http://evs.gs.washington.edu/EVS/) and 1000 Genomes Project (https://www.internationalgenome.org/).

It mainly expresses in dorsal root ganglion neurons, thus its mutations are mainly associated with pain disorders [2]. One week later after the last seizuring, electroencephalogram monitoring showed atypical spike-and-slow waves in the right temporal regions during sleep.

Die Entdeckung, online in PLoS Genetics veröffentlicht wurde, bedeutet, dass einige Kinder mit Dravet-Syndrom, einer Form der Epilepsie, die oft beginnt mit (febrile) Krämpfe induziert Fieber, würden von Gentests profitieren, um festzustellen, ob sie eine Mutation im Gen SCN9A haben, dass Forscher fanden heraus, Ursachen Anfälle betreffen Natriumkanäle im Gehirn. Electrophysiological characterization of different SCN9A mutants in HEK293T cells, the previously-reported N641Y and K655R variants, as well as the newly-found W1150R variant, revealed that the current density of the W1150R and N641Y variants was significantly larger than that of the wild-type (WT) channel. Despite these recent efforts, the electrophysiological basis of SCN9A mutations remains unclear. Up to now, SCN9A mutations encoding Nav1.7 have been limited to inherited pain syndromes. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.seizure.2019.06.005. PubMed  Their seizures remitted spontaneously at that time and have not recurred until now. In our study, the proband experienced FS and FS+ with absence while his father and aunt only had febrile seizures, probably due to the incomplete penetrance and/or the phenotypic heterogeneity. The time constants of recovery from fast inactivation of the N641Y and K655R variants were markedly lower than in the WT channel. J Physiol. Curr Neuropharmacol. Seizure 71:214–218.

Dravet Syndrome is a severe childhood epilepsy with prominent fever-associated seizures. The other phenotypes include FS/FS+ with absence, myoclonic, atonic, or focal seizures [11]. A different heterozygous SCN9A mutation in the same region (K655R; 603415.0019) was found in an unrelated patient with GEFSP7. More than 100 novel mutations are spread throughout the gene with the more debilitating usually de novo. 2020 Aug 18;11:1276. doi: 10.3389/fphar.2020.01276. He presented the first seizure at 1 year and 4 months when encountering a respiratory tract infection with a fever (41 °C). In our study, a novel SCN9A heterozygous mutation (c.5873A>G) causing a missense mutation (p.Y1958C) was discovered. He is diagnosed with epilepsy but not Dravet because he doesn't fit the profile. Location and sequencing of the SCN9A variants. - 13.127.51.90. Several genes have been announced to be associated with GEFS+, in which GABRG2, SCN1A, and GABRA1 account for the major part [6,7,8], while SCN9A is only reported in a few cases. Since then, ~350 patients have been diagnosed with SCN8A epilepsy. A novel SCN9A mutation responsible for primary erythromelalgia and is resistant to the treatment of sodium channel blockers. Whole-exome enrichment was performed using IDT_xGEN, which targets 39Mb protein-coding region of the human genome and covers 51Mb of partial intron. have been described in patients with epilepsy. (2009) identified a heterozygous mutation in the SCN9A gene (N641Y; 603415.0018). No mutations in SCN1A were detected. Here, we performed a genetic screen of patients with febrile seizures and identified a novel missense mutation of SCN9A (W1150R). This site needs JavaScript to work properly. Es konnte somit gezeigt werden, dass auch bei sporadischer myoklonisch-astatischer Epilepsie Mutationen im SCN1A-Gen vorkommen, wohl aber eine deutlich geringere Rolle spielen als bei der schweren myoklonischen Epilepsie, bei der Mutationen in etwa 60 % nachweisbar sind. Best known popularly for explaining why some street performers feel absolutely no pain, variations in the SCN9A gene can play a role in at least four types of conditions: Pain - both increased and decreased (even completely absent) pain perception Increased pain sensitivity is generally dominantly inherited as a … If material is not included in the article's Creative Commons licence and your intended use is not permitted by statutory regulation or exceeds the permitted use, you will need to obtain permission directly from the copyright holder.

Identifying the genetic cause of a patient’s epilepsy can help determine which treatments are likely to … Methods . In addition, we found that oxcarbazepine (OXC), one of the antiepileptic drugs targeting VGSCs, caused a significant shift to more negative potential for the activation and inactivation in WT and mutant channels.
