Newly discovered repeat expansion in three families with autosomal dominant pure cerebellar ataxia. The expansion is located in the 5'UTR of the DAB1 gene, and comprises a (ATTTC)n
insertion within the simple ATTTT/AAAAT repeat at nucleotide 57,832,716 on chromosome 1 (hg19). The pathological (ATTTC)n insertion, ranges from 31 to 75 repeats and is always flanked by (ATTTT)n tracts larger than 58 repeat. Of note, the normal alleles do not contain the pathological ATTTC repeat insertion and comprised 7–400 ATTTT repeat (most frequencty ~30 repeats).
