AR Progressive myoclonic epilepsy 8 - Ferlazzo et al, 2009 &Vanni et al, 2014 - 4 sibs of Algerian descent - hom missense variant. Segregated with disease in the family. In vitro cellular functional expression assays showed that the mutation resulted in decreased biosynthesis of C18-ceramides, indicating decreased CERS1 enzyme function.
