AD progressive myoclonic epilepsy 7 - characterised by onset of severe progressive myoclonis and infrequent tonic clonic seizures in the 1st or 2nd decades of life. Muona et al, 2015 - 13 unrelated patients (presented between 6 and 14 years of age). Found to have arisen de novo in 12 probands, In the other proband she had an aff sib and two aff children who all carried the variant (of note probands parents both unaff and mutation neg and mosaicism not suggested). The same de novo variant ws identifed in all (R320H). In vitro functional expression studies showed that the mutation caused a loss of channel function wih dom neg effect. Of note two other variants in this gene reported on pubmed in assoc with ID and no epilepsy.
