Novel pathogenic mechanisms of myasthenic disorders and potential therapeutic approaches
Congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMS) and myasthenia gravis (MG) are, respectively, inherited or autoimmunological disorders caused by aberrant neuromuscular transmission, which manifests as fatiguable muscle weakness.
A novel subtype of CMS, resulting from mutations in GFPT1 and characterised by a limb girdle pattern of muscle weakness, has been described. The gene encodes L glutamine:D fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase 1 (GFAT1) – a key rate limiting enzyme in the hexosamine bio...Expand abstract
